Sovrin Provisional Trust Framework V2 Approved 2017-06-28


#1

On behalf of the Sovrin Trust Framework Working Group, I am pleased to announce that the Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees has approved the second version of the Sovrin Provisional Trust Framework. This consists of three PDF documents (all available in this Google folder):

  1. Sovrin Provisional Trust Framework 2017-06-28 - PDF version
  2. Sovrin Identity Owner Agreement 2017-06-28 - PDF version
  3. Sovrin Founding Steward Agreement 2017-06-28 - PDF version

This is the version of the Sovrin Trust Framework that will be in effect for the launch of the Sovrin Provisional Network later this summer. (The network is currently at the Alpha stage with 10 nodes live.)

The Trust Framework Working Group is now beginning work on the next version, called the General Availability Trust Framework. This is the version that will go into effect when the network transitions from the Provisional Network to the General Availability Network stage sometime before the end of the year.

Public input and comment is always welcome. Please feel free to post messages on this forum or make comments or suggestions directly in the live Google docs at the links below (all available in this Google folder):

  1. Sovrin Trust Framework (live Google doc version)
  2. Sovrin Identity Owner Agreement (live Google doc version)
  3. Sovrin Steward Agreement (live Google doc version)

Shortly we will be adding a page on the Sovrin Trust Framework to the Sovrin Foundation website to make these links easier to find.

A hearty thanks to all members of the Sovrin Trust Framework Working Group (listed at the start of the main document) who have contributed to this milestone.
