This page is the charter of the TSWG Service Discovery Task Force (SDTF). It is an asynchronous TF that does not currently plan to hold regular meetings, but will conduct its work via GitHub Issues and Discussions.


The mission of the Service Discovery Task Force (SDTF) is to develop specifications that enable discoverability of services in a decentralized context. This includes but is not limited to helping ToIP endpoint systems learn more about the following: 

  • Service endpoints
  • Service capabilities
  • Service features


Currently, the TF has one technology specification as its main deliverable

Additional deliverables related to service discovery MAY be added to this charter.
