Solid

Sir Tim Berners-Lee's vision of a vibrant web,
for all

Solid is a technology for organizing data, applications, and identities on the web. Solid enables richer choices for people, organizations and app developers by building on existing web standards.

Openness leads to creativity, innovation and progress

Solid's power is derived from the fact that it is based on open specifications, just like the web. Open specifications mean interoperability across a broad ecosystem.

Inrupt’s technology aims to help the world leverage the power of Solid, which is why open source software sits at the core of our company. Our tools help others build; their efforts make the Solid ecosystem stronger.

How Solid Pods work

Users control which entities and apps can access their data.

Apps

Apps can access rich stores of data from any Pods, with user permission.

Pods

Pods store user data in an interoperable format and provide users with permissioning controls.
