The RPID testbed consists of the following services and software: the Data Type Registry, the Handle System, and the PID Kernel Information framework.
The Data Type Registry (DTR) provides a way to register detailed and structured descriptions of data objects and encourages the use of established data types, for example, ID, author name, description, metadata standards, date of creation and modification, and so on.
The Handle System is used in the RPID testbed to assign PIDs (Handles) to data objects and to resolving the identification of the resources.
PID Kernel Information is small amount of information stored in a PID record. Such minimal information can help make data objects FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) and less dependent on the repository system. We take FAIR principles as an inspiration and a guide and explore how far can PID Kernel Information aid in implementing FAIR.
