Design principles provide guidance to the designers of a product, service, or system. This lets us take advantage of lessons learned from previous designs.
By extension, ToIP design principles help us inform, guide, and constrain the design of the ToIP stack as an Internet-scale architecture for decentralized digital trust.
Our main goal with these principles is to help evaluate ToIP deliverables. We can then assess if the deliverables are consistent both in spirit and substance.
