WHAT is KnoMe?
The KnoMe Personal Data Protocol Project is currently a proposition for
an industry consortium formed to create and foster an open-source, standardized personal data protocol (PDP) as a methodology for improving personal data security, privatization, development, integration, portability, governance, ownership and value.
WHY build the KnoMe standard protocol?
increased performance:
lightens the load on blockchain, cloud and application network performance at large scale by reducing transaction processing requirements, thus mitigating frustrating transaction latency issues
ease of use:
standardized formatting and transfer greatly improves cross-platform integration, data utility and overall development processes
better security:
makes personal data security much easier to develop, integrate, regulate, monitor and trust
greater privacy:
makes data privacy controls much easier to develop and integrate into clear, understandable user management tools and processes
international compliance:
makes regulation and enforcement much easier for companies and individuals to understand and comply with across borders
data democracy:
allows for greater individual control, understanding, management and utility of one’s own personal data
clearer governance:
makes implementing policies, procedures and standards for information assets much easier for organizations and personal utility
healthier competition:
provides lower barrier to entry, creates larger markets and incentivizes innovation that benefits consumers and commercial end users alike
WHO should get involved in KnoMe?
many people, many perspectives:
all interested parties in the many fields of personal data; capture, storage, analysis, processing, software, privacy, management, utility, brokerage, sales, services, devices or development, whether interested in contributing time or resources, or just staying informed about the project
(join the newsletter)
developers and advisors:
individual developers as well as strategic advisors in all fields are welcomed to contribute their expertise; admins and executive will be nominated and elected
donations and memberships:
corporate sponsorship support through donations or annual membership is welcomed and appreciated
(view “PARTICIPATE” slide)
executive board and committees:
nominations and elections for executive board and advisory committee positions will be made after the initial proof-of-interest period
(view “HOW?” slide)
In order to accurately gauge interest without undue influence, individuals and corporate participants
will not be revealed until Tuesday, May 15th, 2018, once proof-of-interested is validated.
WHEN will KnoMe happen?
introduction:
Consortium / Protocol Introduction:
Monday, April 2nd, 2018
(begins proof-of-interest period)
validation:
Consortium / Protocol Validation:
Tuesday, May 15th, 2018
(ends proof-of-interest period)
inception:
Consortium / Protocol Inception:
Wednesday, May 16th, 2018
(view “HOW?” slide for details)
WHERE will KnoMe be built?
communication:
communication channels to be agreed to by consensus of early members within 15 days of consortium inception
development:
development channels to be agreed to by consensus of early members within 15 days of consortium inception
HOW will KnoMe be built?
The following methodology is merely a suggestion. Further suggestions for improvements, enhancements, edits and/or changes to this strategic approach are welcomed for group consideration. We also welcome initial proposals for protocol formatting and transfer policies and models.

STAGE 1

proof-of-interest
1A: 50 member minimum in 45 days to initiate Stage 2 – consortium and protocol inception

STAGE 2

inception and elections
2A: consortium and protocol inception upon proof-of-interest validation
2B: nominations for short-term board and committee members
2C: elect and promote short-term board and committee members

STAGE 3

suggestions
3A: suggestions for protocol formatting and transfer policies and models
3B: suggestions for developer consensus policies and mechanisms
3C: suggestions for development and communications channels

STAGE 4

consensus / acceptance
4A: primary protocol architecture and policy models
4B: development consensus mechanisms and policies
4C: development and communication channels

STAGE 5

protocol development
5A: initial proof-of-concept protocol prototype developed for validation and integration testing
5B: further protocol components proposed and consensus reached
5C: initial protocol prototype further developed and tested for performance and scaling

STAGE 6

testing and integration
6A: enroll enterprise partners for validation and integration testing
6B: validate and test scaling and performance
6C: testing completed, proven validation, enterprise acceptance

STAGE 7

release
7A: public, open-source protocol release
7B: community advocation for developer and enterprise adoption
7C: protocol reaches critical adoption threshold

STAGE 8

elections
8A: nominations for long-term board and committee members
8B: elect and promote long-term board and committee members

STAGE 9

iteration
9A: bug fixes, enhancements made to protocols
