Dynamic Data and Capabilities in IPFS Working Group

#ipfs-dynamic-data

Research and development of building blocks that enable collaborative applications, providing solutions for security, identity, access control, concurrency, synchronization, offline and near-real-time collaboration on top of IPFS.

Responsibilities include

  • Research and implement CRDTs on top of IPFS, creating building blocks that can be used by other applications.
  • Research Cryptographic ACLs (Capabilities Systems) and create building blocks that implement.
  • Apply this research and implementation to products like PeerPad, validating the solutions and defining new problems to be solved.

Bi-Weekly Sync

Join us on our bi-weekly calls. For that, check out the global IPFS community calendar. Issue describing next meeting.
