Re: Introducing ORY Hydra

Apologies, I meant TiKV, not OpenEBS.

I blame it on jetlag :-)

+1 to what Chris said. I'd suggest that the TOC ask the Security SIG to do the deep due diligence and produce a brief DD report along the lines of the recent one done for OpenEBS by Xiang and the Storage SIG.

Ideally, presenting to a SIG first makes sense unless the TOC states otherwise.

In this case, the Security SIG makes is a natural fit probably.

Hi Aeneas, 

This looks really interesting and I'd love to learn more about it. 

Question for the TOC folks (and other interested parties) regarding processes / scaling / new SIGs: should projects like this present to a SIG first? Or do we want to see it first and then ask the SIGs to help with a deeper dive and DD?

I am writing in reference to the ORY open source organization. The project's focus is cloud native end-user, service, workload, and IoT authentication and authorization.

ORY has to date 11k GitHub Stars and 3.5M+ Docker Pulls in total. The project provides exhaustive documentation and established community management processes, including 1k chat users on Discord, an active Discourse forum  Last month alone there were over one billion API requests according to optional telemetry. ORY is used by several organizations, including Deutsche Boerse AGSegmentRaspberry PI, in production. All our projects are written in Go, designed with cloud native principles and work best in Kubernetes environments. ORY integrates well with other CNCF projects, e.g. Open Policy Agent, as well as projects from the wider Kubernetes Ecosystem for instance Ambassador.

We strongly believe in headless, API-first services. Our projects solve problems with clear domain boundaries. ORY Hydra  our flagship project, is a cloud native, OpenID Certified OpenID Connect and OAuth 2.0 Provider which integrates by design with any login system. What stands out is that all of our projects work independently/stand-alone or in combination with one-another as well as in combination with other open or closed source software projects with adjacent problem domains.

Therefore we would like to present our ecosystem and specifically ORY Hydra to the TOC (issue). Alexis Richardson (cc) and Fabian Reinartz (cc) encouraged us to directly apply for the incubating stage, which is why we are looking for a Sponsor. We were told that contacting the CNCF mailing list would be the best course of action for this. If anyone finds the projects interesting, I would be more than happy to get in touch and present the ecosystem.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards
