Introduction

The Governance Stack Working Group (and the Task Forces within it) specify requirements, roles and processes for the governance architecture of the ToIP stack. For an overview of the ToIP stack, see the Introduction to ToIP white paper.

Scope

Define models and interoperability standards for governance frameworks that enable business, legal, and social trust  between entities implementing the Trust over IP architecture stack as defined in Hyperledger Aries RFC 0289 (or its successor as identified in the RFC document itself).

Meetings

The GSWG currently holds meetings every two weeks. See the GSWG Meeting Page for the schedule of meetings and agendas, notes and recordings from all meetings.

Documents

<Needs editing - Drummond, Scott>  (some) GSWG documents, can be found in the GSWG shared (google drive) folders
