RDF Dataset Canonicalization is a W3C Recommendation

Author(s) and publish date


The RDF Dataset Canonicalization and Hash Working Group published RDF Dataset Canonicalization as a W3C Recommendation. RDF describes a graph-based data model for making claims about the world and provides the foundation for reasoning upon that graph of information. At times, it becomes necessary to compare the differences between sets of graphs, digitally sign them, or generate short identifiers for graphs via hashing algorithms. This document outlines an algorithm for normalizing RDF datasets such that these operations can be performed.
