Tech Monthly Newsletter – ISSUE #2 – 28 February 2022

Dear Tech Community,

Here is our latest Gaia-X technical news.

This month we share with you an overview of:

✔️ The Gaia X Trust Framework

✔️ The New Identity & Access Management subWG

✔️ The Gaia X Lab

✔️ The Hackathon

✔️ Tech Deep Dives

The Trust Framework


The Gaia-X Trust Framework (former Gaia-X Compliance), a key deliverable for the Gaia-X Association will soon be launched.

The Trust Framework enables transparency and trust. Putting a framework in place will help the user to control their level of autonomy and acceleration of our European digital transformation in a sovereign manner.

The Trust Framework is the set of rules that define the minimum baseline for participants and service offerings to be part of the Gaia-X Ecosystem.

All the updates about the Gaia-X trust framework are available here:

The new Identity & Access Management subWG


We are starting a new Identity & Access Management Sub-Working Group under the Federation Services Working Group.

This group will be the owner of the Federation Services IAM specifications.

The SubWG tasks will be provided through the mission document.

Share your input with our team! The Gaia-X members can join this SubWG. Wishing to receive more information regarding the onboarding process and increase your engagement and participation? Please contact Alessandra Perna at

The Gaia-X Lab


We have recently created the Gaia-X Lab – a team of developers under the umbrella of the Gaia-X CTO office. Every interested party, either a member, or not can contribute and send merge-requests to the Gaia-X Lab team, that will in turn review them.
