We are pleased to present you the second research paper in a series of three by our OpenForum Academy Fellow, Dr. Ian Brown. In this series, Dr. Brown, a prominent cybersecurity expert, takes a deep-dive into how increased interoperability in the digital platforms landscape could help solve some of the Internet’s most intractable challenges.
As the title suggest, the second paper “The Technical Components of Interoperability as a Tool for Competition Regulation” provides an analysis of the technical reality needed for the policy goals of interoperability to be achieved. Some of the issues tackled include APIs, different levels of interoperability obligations, security and privacy as well as open authorisation and identities.
Here you can find the first paper in the series, “Interoperability as a Tool for Competition Regulation“.
A shorter summary of the paper can be found on Dr. Brown’s blog, written by Jonathan Todd.
