First Party Sets
Google's First Party Sets proposal enables different sites (or domains) owned by the same organization to declare themselves to people as being allowed to share personal data.
By relying on organizational ownership as the sole mechanism of trust, this advantages vertically-integrated organizations over those that rely on supply-chain partners. This runs counter to the general goal on the web of supporting decentralization.
- How much ownership is required for different domains to be allowed to share personal data?
- How much awareness among the general public is required for different domains to be allowed to share personal data?
- How much control should people have to keep their identity distinct from the various sites within such a "first party set"?
