Dear Kantara Initiative Members and Community:

This is a formal notice. Members of the Kantara Consent and Information Sharing Work Group (CISWG) have recently approved the Consent Receipt Specification v1.0 as a Work Group Draft  Specification. The Consent Receipt Specification v1.0 now enters a 45-day public comment and IPR review period in preparation for a member ballot to consider its approval as a Kantara Initiative Recommendation.

Consent Receipt Specification v1.0
2016-December-16

Specification Overview:
Current best practices, regulations, emerging standards for privacy protection, as well as privacy by design, set out requirements for notice and consent. However, there is no standard or specification for recording consent. As a result, individuals cannot easily track their consents or monitor how their information is processed or know who to hold accountable in the event of a breach of their privacy.

Public Review Period:.
The 45-day public review starts 2017-January-6 and ends 2017-February-20 at 23:59 Pacific Time.
This is an open invitation to comment. Kantara Initiative solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether Kantara Initiative members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.

To Comment on the Specification:
The current specification is available here: http://contact.kantarainitiative.org/comment/KI-CR1_0_0.pdf.

To comment please use the form located at http://contact.kantarainitiative.org/comment/ or email your comments to staff@kantarainitiative.org with the subject "CISWG COMMENT SUBMISSION".

IPR Notice:
In accordance with the Kantara Initiative IPR Policy Article 5 and the Kantara Initiative Operating Procedures Article 6, you have a period of 45 days to review the draft specification for any Necessary Claims that may be implicated by the draft specification.  This Review Period ends on February 19, 2017.
While there is no requirement to review your patent portfolio for Necessary Claims, please be advised that unless you provide a licensing objection in accordance with the Kantara Initiative IPR Policy Article 5 or a notice of withdrawal in accordance with Kantara Initiative IPR Policy Article 6 on or before February 19, 2017, you will have committed to the licensing provisions as set forth by the Patent & Copyright: Reciprocal Royalty Free with Opt-Out to Reasonable And Non discriminatory (RAND) IPR Policy with respect to any Necessary Claims implicated by the final approved specification.
Having signed the Group Participation Agreement (GPA) all members of the CISWG should be familiar with this document, which may create obligations regarding the disclosure and availability of a member’s patent, copyright, trademark and license rights that read on an approved Kantara Initiative specification.
Kantara Initiative invites any persons who know of any such claims to disclose these if they may be essential to the implementation of the above specification so that these notices may be provided to the CISWG.

To submit an IPR Necessary Claim, email staff@kantarainitiative.org with the subject "CISWG IPR CLAIM".

Please contact the Kantara Initiative staff at staff@kantarainitiative.org with any questions regarding this notice.

Kind regards,

UMA WG Update
  • The UMA WG has published UMA 2.0 draft specifications Core rev 10 (including a structural refactoring) and Resource Reg rev 03. The group plans to go through its backlog of V2.0 issues (current list here) by its February 9 meeting, promote the specifications to Public Review, and thence to LC certification for All-Member Ballot. Eve has been working with the Kantara marketing folks to encourage more WG participation in the finalization of the specs, and also to widen awareness of UMA2 generally.
  • No news on the legal subgroup over the holidays, but Eve next needs to review a document in order to make offline progress on the goal of getting legal expert input so the subgroup can execute to its 2017 mission.
BSC DG Update
  • The DG, realizing the last month of its six-month lifetime was eaten into by the holidays, has agreed to extend operations through (at least?) January to no one's surprise.
  • Thomas and Eve are working on the report content with broad group support. We have been moving the wiki version into a GDoc format. A number of use case sections are actively under way.
  • We have been discussing opportunities to recommend further work in various existing Kantara groups as opposed to starting a new WG. Liaisons from these other groups have been receptive and have indicated that such recommendations would likely be consonant with current plans.
