Ahead of schedule, the first trusted web page was delivered today on the Trusted Digital Web – end-to-end – from a Trusted Digital Web – Data Registry service to a Trusted Digital Assistant client application – using didttp: (DID Trusted Transport Protocol).
The Trusted Digital Web Communication Protocols (include ddttp:) are described in Appendix E of the Trusted Digital Web: Whitepaper.
NOTE: The Trusted Digital Web is built on top of and relies on trusted, everyday Internet protocols, services, and specifications such as DNS (Domain Name Service). If you’re unfamiliar with DNS at a technical level, checkout DNS (Domain Name Service): A Detailed, High-level Overview.
NOTE: The UDID Data Registry is a fork of DNS Server (https://github.com/TechnitiumSoftware/DNSServer). Thank you Shreyas Zare.
Here’s some screenshots to document this significant event.
