+1 to “bringing identity into ecosystems” - that’s the goal of the Ecosystem Foundry WG
I love the idea of the EFWG publishing a series of white papers about “ToIP and [your industry]” - each white paper can explain how the ToIP stack can solve key trust issues in that particular industry
Is anyone here familiar with academic publishing? DOIs etc? I am not a domain expert in this field but I am familiar and I thought it would be a good application.
I would be happy to volunteer/collaborate on the white papers.
@Carly, yes, I’m familiar with DOIs within academic publishing. Ironically, DIDs and the ToIP stack take the concept of DOIs and generalize it into decentralized, cryptographically verifiable identifiers that can be used to prove identity for anything.
i "motion" that we consider this white paper to be inducted for consideration by the WG
Excellent idea for template, will help frame the stories consistently
@Jim, I’d have to see it first…
Is there a list of existing use cases that needs to be documented and/or a prioritized list of domains where ToIP will provide high value?
@scott, yes of course. it may be the paper is jointly edited to our proposed template
@subra - yes. anyone can bring a proposed use case
@Jim, I think the creation and proposing of a white paper is open to any member. Once it is written, and conforms to the template, the WG would decide whether it wants to officially endorse or sponsor the white paper, or some alternative.
And what are they asking for from us?
Keep in mind the “boundary” in the name of this WG. That implies our main products should focus on templates, frameworks, rules, processes, and guidance for creating ecosystems. We don’t actually create them, or maybe even approve them.
That should be “foundry” and it was before I hit return…
Can the white papers help identify ideal states to work towards and with that goal in mind we, the Ecosystem WG develop the tools, frameworks, and path for any org to successful enable an ecosystem as identified by the white paper ideal state?
Carla, yes, that would be a wonderful outcome of the white papers
#1 i reckon that the eco-system needs shd drive the governance requirements#2 the eco-system shd generalised and be decomposed into one or more of the following components:[a] people[b] processes / biz rules[c] products / services[d] technology[e] commercial / biz model#3 if we can accurately model the eco-system based on [a], [b], [c], [d] and [e] then we can branch out to the various layers in the toip stack
Food is alao a topic in the Sovrin SSI IOT group
I like Scott’s recommendation to prototype an ecosystem. We certainly have a handful of use cases that can demonstrate interoperability: COVID initiative, farmworkers/essential workers, human trafficking, patient healthcare records
Excellent point @ Gena, I am doing some work on textile and clothing supply chains which transcend boundaries
+1 Drummond I think as soon as we can provide examples things will become less theoretical and the story will come together
I think we are going to find that an ecosystem is described by what looks like a cross-enterprise architecture, but with governance frameworks and technical specs at each level.
…and we may not go lower than layer 3 to define the VCs that make up the ecosystem’s data transfer protocols.
Annegret is telling the story of my career...
+1 to ScottW’s point that cross-ecosystem interop should not need to worry about Layers 1 and 2, only 3 and 4
..because any solution at layer 1 and 2 should work if they are ToIP compliant. I *think* that’s the whole point of ToIP.
+1 Scott Perry!!!
+1 Drummond, unfortunately I don't think VC's are a good scope - a particular solution
that's why we establish ratification
All good, thanks for a great session
