US DoD xAPI Profile Server Recommendations2018; Bowe, M.; Silvers, A.E.
In order for a federated network of xAPI Profile servers to serve their purpose, there needs to be a way for an organization or group to create an xAPI Profile and share the information they authored without risk of losing data or outside groups changing the given xAPI Profile. This requires a governance model where a central authority informs profile servers of who should have access to edit which profiles. Such an authoritative body also needs to identify which profiles are the most appropriate in a given context, verifying the quality and substance of an xAPI Profile. This is required for tools reading profiles to know which profiles are most high priority to ingest and use.
