The Ecosystem Foundry Working Group supports the emergence of groups of tools and applications that allow for the frictionless exchange of verifiable credentials through technical interoperability and a common recognition of the business contexts, policies and rules reflected in governance frameworks.


Facilitate a community of practice among governance authorities, implementers, operators, and service providers of Trust over IP Layer Four ecosystems. The WG will provide process guidance for the establishment and monitoring of new ToIP Layer Four ecosystem projects, whether hosted at the Linux Foundation or external to it. Other WG activities will include creating template RFPs for service providers, maintaining a list of affiliated Foundry Service Providers, identifying areas of collaboration and alignment between associated and/or disparate ecosystems, and where possible serving as a center of competence for the  education and promotion of the role of ToIP Layer Four ecosystems.
