Working Group Health
The working group health has been good. Regular attendance has increased. This is due to efforts to run multiple calls on the same day and constant evangelizing. "Convergence" is a natural for this group as all running DLTs need multiple notions of Identity. We are constantly refining our raison d'etre. We are a launchpad and mothership of Identity related projects in Hyperledger. The whitepaper has a lot more contributions.
The issue of gender diversity continues to dog us.
Overall Activity in the Past Quarter
Regular meetings are being held. Some examples of presentations given in the last quarter include:
- More on Aries
- FATF/GAFI recommendations
- India Consent layer
- Are dlts needed for SSI (see the peer DID spec as an example that challenges this assumption)
- An example of Identity layer and Transaction layer converging - see notes
- CULedger a perspective
- A paper on the complementarity of Hubs and Agents
Copy editing of the Identity Working group paper is almost completed. Many thanks to Kelly Cooper for the exemplary diligence and persistence with this work. A first pass is over.
We have become a standing or permanent conference on Identity; going all year around; the material we produce can be consumed asynchronously by people interested in digital Identity on DLTs. This is a mix of demos, works in progress, techniques, tips, commentary on regulatory activity etc.
Planned Work Products
Slow and steady progress on the Identity whitepaper which we hope to bring to a first draft by the end of the year. We still have a few sections to fill in, mostly on DID and the latest from the FATF. A comprehensive reference section will be included.
We have a proposal to bring back further cross project work for all the Identity work being done inside Hyperledger, taking over part of the Indy WG calls.. We may adopt this as a standing extension to our regular call or setup a different time for the coordination call.
Annotation of the notes and the presentations to make them more friendly to discovery and research.
Continue presentations and discussions. One of the themes is convergence of Identity Standards and solutions.
We are a standing conference on Identity in Hyperledger.
Implement CHAOSS metrics.
Geographic - very good, APAC is still a challenge
Industry - Good mix, tech companies along with identity related companies and independents
Gender - This is a challenge.
We look forward to the working group task force report, to implement some of their recommendations.
