Motion carries


FICAM TFS cross-TFP use of approved service components
  • At the last FICAM TFS call with CSPs and TFPs there was a discussion about the current prohibition on allowing Service Component Providers approved under one TFP to be directly used by a different TFP when seeking approval under that second TFP.
  • The core concern of FICAM TFS is to ensure that all trust criteria are covered adequately
  • The TFP position is that through conformity to the FICAM TFS TFPAP, approved entities should be equivalent
  • The discussion centered on the interoperability and protocols between the two Service Component providers
  • FICAM TFS did not clarify which Trust Criteria are applicable to the different roles and actors specified
    • Looking to IAWG to make this determination
  • When one component exchanges data with another component there are explicit requirements from FICAM TFPAP
  • Work was done in 2014 to separate and assign requirements to components and which were inter-component (Peter, Rich, Scott, Andrew)
    • IAWG could confirm the breakout and formally submit it to FICAM as a joint submission
  • Shorter proposes to separate the Identity Manager from the Identity Proofer role in the current spreadsheet
  • Peter Alterman to locate the correct spreadsheet and distribute to IAWG
  • Joni - this would actually be increasing the formalization of the current state - service providers ability to contract with other service providers & extending across TFPs
  • The common thread among FICAM TFPs is FICAM itself
  • Rich has sent a reference spreadsheet to the list as a starting point - pick up in 2 weeks
