Apologies for being absent from P3, I am neck deep in a project at
the moment which is effecting my ability to be a Secretary. As
privacy and identity is a very hot topics at the moment, I am sure
that many other members are experiencing an increase in work and
In this regard, you may or may not already be aware of this NSTIC
Update. I was sent this directly by NSTIC last week, which leads me
to believe that P3/Kantara input is being invited by NSTIC.
P3 has contributed to NSTIC input and discussion from the outset of
the project. Many members of P3 have spoken on panels at NSTIC, and
we have discussed NSTIC in length in WG calls. In this regard, I
would like to raise the discussion of an NSTIC pilot for the new P3
leadership and invite P3 members to discuss this.
Are there any P3 members or member organisations considering a pilot
program proposal around privacy and trust? Are there any suggestions
of what P3 as a WG might consider contributing?
PS. If there is anyone who is interested in volunteering as
Secretary please let me or Anna know. ( With two co-chairs this
should be fairly light work, 1-2 hours a wk) I will available to help
