The User Agent includes the collaboration between the SSI edge agent front-end and back-end components on the User side in order to manage incoming DID invitations, checking VCs issued to the User (acceptance or negation) or create VPs. It also provides an interface to communicate with the cloud Authority Agent. The User can manage his received VCs inside his Digital Wallet (i.e. store them, select VCs (VPs) which are to be sent to DC, etc.) by communicating with the SSI edge agent back-end.
