New issue 1340: Sending the presentation definition by reference

David Chadwick:

Currently the RP sends its VC requirements in a presentation definition that is embedded in the request. An alternative approach is for the RP to send its VC requirements to the \(SI\)OP by reference. This reference could be to a public policy server, so that multiple RPs \(e.g. members of a federation\) can reference the same VC requirements. Furthermore by making their requirements publicly visible, this ensures compliance with GDPR’s minimal disclosure rules, and aides inspection by the ICO.

The proposal is for the presentation definition to be referenced by a URL to its location on the policy server \(or it could be by a URI and the policy could be stored on a blockchain\).
