- Secure Data Storage and Compute Working Group

Specs & Projects
Decentralized Web Node
- Decentralized Web Node (DWN) - GitHub
Formerly known as the Identity Hub, this initiative is to develop a data storage and message relay mechanism that entities can use to locate public or private permissioned data related to a given Decentralized Identifier (DID).
Encrypted Data Vaults
- Encrypted Data Vaults - GitHub
This specification describes a privacy-respecting mechanism for storing, indexing, and retrieving encrypted data at a storage provider. It is often useful when an individual or organization wants to protect data in a way that the storage provider cannot view, analyze, aggregate, or resell the data. This approach also ensures that application data is portable and protected from storage provider data breaches.
