Project Danube Charter

From IdCommons


Project Danube Working Group


Project Danube is a collection of software components built on the ideals of moving away from a centralized online world and of "putting identity and personal data back under the control of individuals". At the core of the Project Danube architecture lies what is commonly known as a "Personal Data Store", which is a data repository that is fully under the control of its owner. Once that is in place, a set of modular components can provide various identity and personal data related services on top of the Personal Data Store, in order to realize visions such as the Federated Social Web, Vendor Relationship Management and other applications.

The purpose of this Working Group is to support the development work of Project Danube as well as to help with communication and interoperability with other Working Groups such as the Higgins Project and Project Nori.
