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.
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).
The GSWG currently holds meeting every two weeks. See the GSWG Meeting Page for the schedule of meetings and agendas, notes and recordings from all meetings.
The table below lists all GSWG deliverables that have been approved to move beyond Pre-Draft status. WG members are welcome to follow the links to contribute, either by joining the responsible Task Force (TF) or contributing directly to a deliverable document.
