68. Gaia-X Ontology

Gaia-X is using ontologies for Compliance and Policy Reasoning. For compliance, Gaia-X has built an ontology in order to describe all the relevant entities, using triples subject–predicate–object from the Resource Description Framework. All Gaia-X Digital Clearing Houses use the same ontology, especially to check the consistency of Verifiable Credentials.

Gaia-X is also using the ontology from ODRL to perform policy reasoning.
