On 03.02.2023 from 09:00 – 12:00 the fourth Gaia-X workshop “Hackathon: Self-Description” will take place together with Kai Meinke (deltaDAO).
The goal of the event is a first creation of Gaia-X compatible self-descriptions. The event is related to the exchange with Roland Fadrany, COO of the Gaia-X Association, which took place on 19.01.2023, where information was given about the criteria for the inclusion of projects as “Gaia-X Lighthouse Project”.
We are looking forward to your numerous attendance and are available for further inquiries as always.
If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org !
In order to make the hackathon as time efficient as possible, please note the following hints and information:
First step in onboarding is the creation of the first Gaia-X compliant participant Self-Description in line with the Gaia-X Trust Framework to have an identity baseline for your institution, also known as KYB – Know your Business. For this reason, we will need the following details to issue such a Self-Description.
This is a good example for starters: https://delta-dao.com/.well-known/participantdeltadao.json
Reference is the Trust Framework for a legal person: https://gaia-x.gitlab.io/policy-rules-committee/trust-framework/participant/
Please be precise on the company details (full legal name incl suffix, company registration/vatID or EUID/leiCode if available). We’ll also need the ISO Country Code and the subdivision for your legal headquarter there (some parts might become obsolete until the workshop due to the Trust Framework update).
For the test ecosystem we currently assume the role of a Trust Anchor and will sign your SD to help you along. In the production ecosystem this is done, i.e. by liable eIDAS TSPs listed as Gaia-X Trust Anchors, see: https://gaia-x.gitlab.io/policy-rules-committee/trust-framework/trust_anchors/
If you are comfortable with the first steps and onboarded, the advanced process would be to use your X.509 certificate and reference to your own DID:WEB, but we’ll skip that for step one.
Please don’t worry because of the blockchain AccountID in the example credential. This must be added to be able to use the Gaia-X Web3 ecosystem, but is not part of the Trust Framework. If you would like to use the demonstrators provided, we’ll just add an Account ID for the demo and testing purposes in the workshop.
