The mission of the ToIP Foundation is to define a complete architecture for Internet-scale digital trust that combines cryptographic trust at the machine layer with human trust at the business, legal, and social layers. The ToIP stack has two parallel halves Governance Stack and a Technical Stack operating at four layers 1) Utility (DLT Blockchain) Layer, 2) Provider (Agent/Wallet) Layer, 3) Credential (Issuer/Verifier/Holder) Layer and 4) Ecosystem (Application) Layer. See further details in the ToIP white paper and the ToIP RFC.
As one of the first four Working Groups, the mission of the Governance Stack WG is to fully define the ToIP Governance Stack.
The mission of this Task Force is to further develop the roles and processes identified in the initial ToIP RFC. The goal is to establish generally accepted roles, responsibilities and processes that apply to actors participating in each of the four layers of the ToIP stack.
Prior to participating in the meetings please ensure that you are a member of the Trust Over IP Foundation. More detail on this can be found at this link.

The GSWG P&R Task Force intends to create robust definitions of roles, responsibilities and processes that actors will operate at all four levels of the ToIP stack. The focus will be on governance and operational processes—definitions will only touch upon technical processes as needed for clarity. This Task Force will not focus on technical interoperability (deferring to the Technical Stack Working Group). These definitions are critical for consistently applying governance principles across all four ToIP layers.
Key deliverables will include, but are not limited to:
As a Task Force (TF) of the Governance Stack WG (GSWG), the GSWG P&R TF inherits the IPR terms from the GSWG JDF Charter. These include:
Key milestones will include, but are not limited to:
The work of the GSWG P&R TF will be complete when final drafts of both deliverables are submitted to the GSWG.
As this TF will establish generally accepted roles, responsibilities and processes of the ToIP Governance Stack, it will need to work with a variety of other ToIP task forces and working groups to align definitions and deliverables. They include, but not limited to:
Kickoff: Thursday July 30, 2020 11:00PDT (18:00 UTC)
