Scott Shorter introduced the group to the current round of comments (see attachment IAWG Comments 2015-05-07.pdf and IAWG Comments 2015-05-07.docx).  These were distributed shortly before the call.

The following terms were also distributed for comment:

  • anonymity: the property of a service of not disclosing identifying information about users.
  • pseudonymity: the property of a service that permits users to identify themselves by aliases and other unverified names.
  • reversible pseudonymity: the property of a service that performs identity proofing during registration but permits users to identify themselves by aliases and other unverified names. Identified authorities are permitted to obtain the verified name of the user under controlled circumstances.
  • unlinkability: the property of a service that prevents disclosure of multiple accesses of a service or resource by the same user.
Due to the short time for review, it was agreed that the review would proceed offline for further discussion via email and at next week's meeting.


Adam Madlin inquired about what happens when a service's entry on the trust status list expires.  Scott Shorter responded that he is not aware of how FICAM enforces it, but it's Kantara's job to keep track of expiration and list it appropriately on the trust status list.  Rich Furr pointed out that assessments are good for one year and that sometimes extensions could be granted, and that Kantara staff and FICAM would know more.
