To facilitate an interoperable community for Layer 1 public utilities among governance authorities, implementers, operators, and service providers for Trust over IP. The WG will provide process guidance for the establishment and monitoring of new ToIP Layer 1 utility 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 Utilities, and where possible serving as a center of competence for the education and promotion of the role of ToIP Layer 1 utilities.
