RE: 3. Review ‘Division of Responsibilities between Hubs and EDVs’ list, call for objections or additions. Proposed list so far: https://hackmd.io/qClYLUPkQ7uf0r3_4O7BUQ

 

Dimitri and WG colleagues,

 

I’d like to suggest either before tomorrow’s SDS WG call or, as an early part of the call, that we establish a few things we don’t have:

  1. A working/workable definition of/simple litmus test for what a [Identity] Hub is?
  2. A working/workable definition of/simple litmus test for what an Encrypted Data Vault (EDV) is?
  3. That is, two definitions that clearly contrast these 2 terms.

 

Without the above, I believe it is difficult (impossible) to continue with agenda item #3 with any additional depth.  After completing a description of the lengthy Distributed Twitter (Dewitter) app scenario, I know what an EDV is but I didn’t need and don’t expect to need anything called a Hub. I have no idea what a Hub is or if the Hub concept is even needed.

 

To facilitate this discussion, can someone (e.g. @DanielB) take a stab at drawing a boundary what might be considered to be an [Identity] Hub?  I’ve attached the PPTX source slide as well as a rendered image (below).

 

 

Is this a reasonable request?  Can we agree to precede the agenda item #3 discussion with an initial determination of these 2 definitions: EDVs and [Identity] Hubs?

 

Best regards,

Michael
