Changing the landscape—through deliverables
The “Work” of the Working Groups is to create deliverables!
Yes, we have interesting conversations between intelligent people, and we learn from each other and invent new things together.
However, the goal remains to change the Digital Trust Landscape, and that requires deliverables that people can put into action.
The ToIP Foundation produces a wide range of tools and specifications, organized into five categories:
- Specifications to be implemented in code
- Glossaries to be incorporated in other documents
- Recommendations to be followed in practice
- Guides to be executed in operation
- White Papers to assist in decision making.
