ACL file (Access Control List)
Defines the properties associated with the level of access of a user. Comprised of classes (e.g., “Agent” this allows anyone and anything to access”)
A piece of data (of some type), that is stored on a Pod server. This file has a url endpoint.
The data storage model used by the semantic web. An RDF graph can be visualized as a node and directed-arc diagram, in which each triple is represented as a node-arc-node link. RDF graphs are set(s) of “subject - predicate - object” triples that are used to express descriptions of resources. The Turtle language is used to express these triples.
A Solid users' exposed, customizable, profile
Target of the link
A Semantic Web language that builds on RDF
Pod (Personal Online Datastore)
A secure repository containing the user’s data. Users control application access to their Pod(s).
An application that provides a UI and UX that allows the user to manage their Things, Files, People, and Applications. This management includes permissioning.
The link type
A URI that refers to a person that uniquely identifies a user to their public key
A generic graph-based data model with which to structure and link data on the web. The data model describes Things, including their relationships with other Things. RDF can be written in a number of ways (AKA serialisations), an example of which is Turtle. https://www.w3.org/standards/techs/rdf#w3c_all https://www.w3.org/TR/rdf11-concepts/
An extension of the basic RDF data modelling vocabulary
W3C’s vision of a web of linked data. “Semantic web technologies enable people to create data stores on the Web, build vocabularies, and write rules for handling data.”
The a query language for RDF
Source of the link
A piece of data, file, or collection of files that can be manipulated, shared, linked to additional things and data, or people via codified known ontologies.
A structural syntax for RDF. “Turtle allows RDF graph to be completely written in a compact and natural text form, with abbreviations for common usage patterns and datatypes.” Provides compatibility with the triple pattern syntax of the SPARQL. All Turtle files have the extension “.ttl”.
A decentralized system for allowing different users and groups of users, forms of access to resources. Users are identified by WebID and groups of users are identified by HTTP URIs.
A unique way to identify an entity such as an individual, company, organisation, or institutions. The WebID allows for an entity to be references using a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) when their profile is hosted on a different web server than their own.
