Action Item Review


Staff Updates

LC Updates
  •  Call was cancelled
Participant updates


Updates on the "Core Profile" work - Furr

  • Has sent to a small team for early review, waiting for comments - will get this to IAWG for review
  • A different team is working on US-FICAM and non-US profiles

NIST CSD - Draft SP800-160 "Systems Security Engineering" has been released for comment- Scott

  • High quality document, worth reading for comments to NIST
  • Probably a good candidate for Kantara formal response

Andrew raised the topic of 'Attribute LOA' for general discussion

  • FICAM is requiring some attribute bundles in the ATOS process
  • FICAM is looking to Kantara to address certain aspects such as Refresh
  • Ken - Allan Foster was chairing the Attributes WG but has gone defunct - due to fuzzy focus for the WG
  • Ken - the linkage between the person and past addresses does need an LOA
  • Susan (MITRE) - lots of interest in Attribute Assurance - more related to ID Assurance from attributes
    • They are looking in the area of what calculated assurance levels are available based on the specific attributes available for consideration
  • Adam - NIST is planning to do an attributes workshop - session is planned at June IDESG Plenary
  • Rich - what should we recommend to ARB as an action? Spin up a subgroup? Reactivate the WG?
  • Adam - determine how to collaborate with other groups
  • ACTION: Chair to take the question to LC: Given the interest and importance of Attributes to Kantara, FICAM and other TFPs, should the Attributes WG be revived? a subgroup of IAWG formed? (Verification, refresh, other characteristics)?
  • ACTION: IAWG to post thoughts to list to prepare Rich to take to LC
  • Adam is under the impression that FICAM is waiting for feedback from Kantara on the Attributes question


Andrew moves to adjourn, Scott seconds.
