OpenLink Virtuoso

More specifically, the WebDAV File System Module a/k/a OpenLink Data Spaces (ODS) Layer.  ODS is a Data Space Shim built around Virtuoso's WebDAV layer that adheres to Solid conventions of —

  • Identity — via WebID
  • Identity Verification (or Authentication) — via WebID+TLS or WebID-OIDC (WebID-OIDC is still a work-in-progress)
  • Document Access Controls (or Authorization) — via WebACLS or WAC
  • Read-Write Operations on Documents — via HTTP PATCH using application/sparql-update payloads

Minimum installation atop basic Virtuoso (Enterprise Edition only) installation is Virtuoso Authentication Layer (VAL), ODS-Framework, and ODS-Briefcase VADs.
