15 minsTODAQDann Tolliver

discussion of TODA protocol by Dann Toliver:

  • Dann has been observing - and introduce by Shermineh Salehi Esmati
  • TODA - not a system (doesn't do consensus) it is a data structure approach aimed at quality.
    • e.g. money, gift certificate, my account, identity document, 
    • stateful assets in particular - state changes/evolved (e.g. ownership, properties change, move device holding)
    • e.g. government credential - allowed to move? what needs to happen for it to move.
    • Book-Entry assets - state is known in book (file cabinet) and need to go to physical location
    • Physical Asset - bearer certificate (e.g. ice cream loyalty card with punches). Act of making it physical - implies state changes... but when it returns it has the integrity as if it had been in their book the whole time.
    • Digital Domain - 
    • Axis 1 - Physical/Digital 
    • Axis 2 - BOOK ENTRY / non-BOOK ENTRY  
      • Book Entry - anchored to something known (e.g. system of record, ledger, etc.)
      • non-Book Entry - asset is "mobile" and held outside of the book (bearer instrument)
    • Guarantees - going betweeen BOOK/non-BOOK (e.g. bank to cash; 
    • "well-formed rig" structure about the integrity
    • "as if it had been in the (source of truth) system the whole time"
    • TODA proof structure is aligned with KERI key rotation
    • Research and core development is open and unencumbered. TODAQ commercializes by building on top of it. 
25 minsIntroduction to CESR

Composable Event Streaming Representation (CESR) as defined by this Internet Draft is a solution to the very knotty problem of how to achieve interoperable streaming representations of cryptographically signed and encrypted payloads. Samuel Smith will explain why the KERI community believes it is an essential component of an Internet trust spanning layer.
