OCapN Pre-standardization Group
We are a group focused on converging and working on pre-standardization of OCapN. OCapN stands for "Object Capability Network" and provides:
- CapTP (Capability Transport Protocol) which is the heart of OCapN. This protocol allows for networked programming which, with the appropriate tooling, has the convenience of programming against "networked objects" which are little different from any other asynchronous programming in the host language.
- A generalized "netlayer" interface and specifications of compatible implementations. OCapN's CapTP can be run over different "netlayer" implementations ranging from Tor Onion Services to IBC to I2P to libp2p to perhaps carrier pigeons with backpacks full of encrypted microsd cards.
- A URI structure for addressing machines and specific objects on machines.
The group does its work mainly on our GitHub page, if you're interested in joining us head over there for more information on our current work and upcoming meetings. The group is comprised of:
Our next meeting is on between and UTC. If you'd like to join us, find more information on the GitHub issue
