Trust is what is missing in today's Internet or the Web. That is known if you have ever thought about Web3, DeFi, Metaverse, or digital identity, or the ills of social media platforms... The challenge is how to establish a trust spanning layer over the Internet and still maintain its universal interoperability. In this talk, I report the ongoing work of the Technology Architecture Task Force in the Trust over IP Foundation where I am one of the chief contributors. I will cover the Reference Architecture and, by examining the Design Principles inspired by the original Internet architecture and human-centric trust relationships, I will present the reasons for a hourglass protocol stack design for the purpose of universal interoperability. Prominent open source implementations & community specs, e.g. DIDcommv2, KERI, DWP (tbdex), libp2p, Indy/Aries, will be presented as case studies to demonstrate path for interoperability based on the Reference Architecture. We can have the cake and eat it too.
