In todays article we will continue our daily post and today I am with you a new Topic that is Solid Project. I think you did not understand anything but to after reading this article you will get to know all about Solid Project.
So now a days we all are hearing a lot about new Internet. Yes, you all are hearing all right that Tim Berners Lee is now working on a new web.
Tim berners Lee born on 8 june 1955 is an engineer and computer scientist. He is also Founder of World Wide Web (WWW).
He is now director of World Wide Web Consortium.
About Solid Project-
Nowadays privacy for a common man on Internet is equal to negligible. Big companies like Google , Facebook and Amazon are capturing data of peoples and their customers. But dont forget our all problem will we solved by Solid Project.
With that help of data they display add to audience and influence and convinence them towards the need of companies. Big companies now just using their customers data and selling that to other companies in a big deal.
To deal with this problem Tim Bernerr Lee decided to make a new Platform title as ” Solid” .
Berners-Lee felt that the internet was in need of repair and conceived the Solid project as a first step to fix it, as a way to give individual users full control over usage of their data.
He got an idea about a new internet by the need of todays world because our todays data is not in secure hands.
It is a decentralized web project in which data is stored in our own computer and server but in Encrypted form so that no one can access our data without our key.
We can store our data to big servers also but that will be encrypted on this platform and encryption key will we have so without our permission none can access data and this way we can improve our security and protect our privacy.
Solid Project Components-
Following things Solid project consist of:-
- An organized collection of standards and data formats/vocabularies providing the same capabilities that centralized social media services offer,permission lists,such as identity, authentication, feed subscriptions,contact management, login, ,messaging, comments, discussions, and others.
- A platform documentation, tutorials,discussion, and presentations.
- A test suite for testing and validating Solid implementations.
- An ecosystem of identity providers,social applications, and helper libraries that run on the Solid platform.
- Specifications and design notes describing a REST API to extend community building servers or applications.
Now, If you are having following questions then I am here with your answers.
What is Solid Project ?
Solid is new project led by Prof. Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web,taking place at MIT
The project aims to radically change the way Web applications work today, resulting in true data ownership as well as improved privacy.
What does Solid Project offer?
Social stands for social linked data. It is used for tools for building decentralized social applications based on Linked Data principles.
Because applications are decoupled from the data they produce, users will be able to avoid seamlessly switching,vendor lock-in, between apps and personal data storage servers, without losing any data.
