Welcome and Introduction to the Charter

  • Started off around EBSI, but the topic is much broader, hence deciding to create a Task Force.
  • The idea is that we connect the use cases to the technologies to contextualise initiatives and technology.
  • Refer to TF-DLT Home for more details.
  • Whilst SSI and DLT are large topics in themselves, and would no doubt attract a wide audience alone, we believe that the most efficient way to manage this TF is to include both, with an option to zoom in on specific topics with more focused meetings in the future, for example there is a whole team working on SSI at SWITCH that would have good contributions in this area. We agreed to address both topics in this group, to make it clear what will be discussed in each meeting in order to have the right attendees; later on we can understand which direction we should be taking.
  • There is an opportunity to include in the GN5

Milestones review

  • Refer to TF-DLT Home for more details.
  • A review of the milestones took place; it was agreed that the current set of milestones is good and it still in line with the scope of the TF.
  • We would like to collect/document the various initiatives in the community, and a Wiki page will be provided for that, subsequent to collecting the information on a Google doc.
  • We would like to invite colleagues/members and members of neighbouring communities to present on the initiatives they're working on, including external parties, e.g. Duo in the Netherlands, as well as NREN activities.


  • Niels van Dijk presented some initial context, use cases, trends and challenges, including SURF initiatives such as IRMA, eduID 'Wallet' and eduBadges:
  • Christos suggested that an output of this group could be a white paper, on our experiences, the technology gaps, and challenges for implementation, scalability and adoption - this was agreed. To this end Davide noted that it would be good to explore as part of the white paper the usage of  European wallets and to also investigate how to attributes will be certified (via a ledger or via digital certificates).
