  • Volunteers

    The Sovrin Foundation is supported by a team of dedicated volunteers and part-time staff who coordinate the important task of the Foundation.

  • Technical Governance Board

    The Technical Governance Board (TGB) is responsible for governing the technical design, architecture, implementation, and operation of the Sovrin Network as a global public utility for self-sovereign identity. The TGB charter has more details on how they accomplish this mission. One of the key tasks of the TGB is to review the technical qualifications of Steward candidates to ensure they meet the requirements and principles in the Sovrin Trust Framework.

The Sovrin Foundation is governed by three complimentary agreements:


The Sovrin Foundation is a nonprofit organization established to promote the concept of internet identity for all and to administer the Governance Framework governing the Sovrin Network, a decentralized global public network enabling self-sovereign identity on the internet. The Sovrin Network is operated by independent Stewards and uses the power of a distributed ledger to give every person, organization, and thing the ability to own and control their own permanent digital identity.

Support the infrastructure of the Sovrin Network by administering the Sovrin Trust Framework
Lead the open-source community effort that develops and builds the Sovrin protocol and the code that embodies it.
Recruit and assist Sovrin Stewards in operating the network
Lead thought and action in the advancement and acceptance of self-sovereign identity and the network on which it is built.
