Kyle's presentation referred to this wiki:

First Scott explained that the next steps to build on the ToIP governance metamodel is to begin developing layer-specific templates.

  • The natural place for this to start is with ToIP Layer 1 public utilities. Utility Foundry WG co-chairs Alex Tweeddale and Lynn Bendixsen are here to talk to that today.
  • Kyle Robinson will talk about the needs at Layer 3.

Second, Kyle gave a presentation about the governance framework work they are doing in British Columbia.

  • He began by showing a view of the 4-layer ToIP stack that fills in all of the requirements for a full operational instance of the stack (see screenshot #1 below).
    • The left side shows the technology stack implementation that BC Gov is using.
    • The right side shows the different governance frameworks involved.
  • He then showed a diagram from the ToIP interactive model that fills in the different parties involved in the digital trust ecosystems being developed in British Columbia (see screenshot #2 below).
    • Kyle stressed that an "ecosystem" can be very simple.
    • Also, two ecosystems can intersect with each other and produce synergies without any formal recognition of each other.
    • Nicky Hickman: I love the idea of fuzzy boundaries - I guess this is where the semantics comes in - the same credential might mean something in different ecosystems. Contextual and dynamic policy & governance
  • Stephen Curran asked a question about separation and avoiding dependencies. He asked for examples of Layer 3 specific credential governance frameworks (CFGs).
  • Kyle then showed examples from the BC Gov "verifiable credentials wiki" at of how educational credentials work in BC Gov governance frameworks that are in development.

Finally, Scott Perry said that he is going to create 8 placeholder documents:

  • 4 layer-specific templates
  • 4 Companion Guides

He stressed that they will be "messy" for quite a while, however that's where we will start to aggregate all the pieces that will eventually go into the final deliverables.
