Building an open and interoperable ecosystem for digital trust

At MATTR we believe that the infrastructure to support digital trust must be developed in the open.

MATTR recognises that trust is fundamentally a human concept. We collaborate with policymakers, industry specialists and experts from a range of different communities and interest groups to develop capabilities that allow digital trust to be brought to life in a meaningful way.

With these insights, MATTR works as part of a global community of technical experts developing open standards to support interoperability. Working in open standards communities helps to ensure that no one party controls the digital trust infrastructure of the internet.

Our product approach

Our product is open, accessible and complies with the evolving global standards.

At our core, and as technologists, we’re striving to be unopinionated and application-agnostic when it comes to toolings. The MATTR product architecture combines our guiding principles into a functional toolkit to support and partner with customers – bringing their ideas to life.

Our guiding principles

Standards first technology

Standards enable user choice and prevent vendor lock-in, enabling interoperability of data models and protocols for cryptography, messaging, storage, and so much more.

At MATTR, we aim to leverage and support existing standards wherever possible in our products. Where gaps exist, we propose modifications or develop new specifications and invest the time and effort required to consult with the community and work through the standardisation process. This approach allows the MATTR community to have confidence that our Platform is built with a commitment to interoperability and access, reducing your risk and future proofing your implementations.

Some of the standards development organisations we work within include:

W3C DIF IETF Hyperledger OpenID

A modular architecture

Building on open standards, the MATTR Platform supports a wide range of distinct pluggable components to ensure that as the technology evolves – you do too.

Our Platform can be extended in multiple directions – whether it be for supporting application specific logic in our Extensions layer or enabling new and novel protocols and cryptography in our Driver layer.

This architecture promotes maximum flexibility, agility, and standards compliance for your solution – ultimately helping drive adoption and value across the stack whilst minimising risk.
