Notes & Minutes


Minutes Approval

Motion to approve minutes of 2015-11-19, 2015-11-05: Andrew moves to accept the minutes
Seconded:  Ken Dagg seconds
Motion Carried

Action Item Review

  • Converting SAC to spreadsheet
  • Whitepaper TBD
  • Feedback on 800-63 closed
  • Comments on A-130 went in
  • Wiki restructure comments were not received, that sounds like consent to proceed
  • SAC mapping to 29115 - RGW reports that there will be a statement asking for feedback on the veracity of the findings. Joni requested a readership section which includes an invitation to comment. RGW didn't deem it needing further formal basis. RGW will send that passage for comments on what's going in.  Andrew suggests that we just go ahead and release without further round of review.  Document will be labeled a Kantara report.
  • Ken Dagg asks if the same is true about the 800-63.  We're not sure of the approx time that 
  • RGW moves that we approve IAF 5463 as a Kantara report as previously presented. Ken suggests that the text be subject to the same edits as IAF 5415.  Andrew Hughes seconded.

Privacy Enhanced Identity Broker White Paper

Andrew reminds that there's a call for comments out until 12/18. Andrew will reach out to people to have their say.  Scott reviewed and has some thoughts, will share with Andrew.

Ken reminds that there's 24 hours before the comment deadline to get them to Joni for packaging and distribution.

Spreadsheet Version of IAF

Shared with the agenda this week.  The document shows criteria and allows visualization of how the requirements vary among the levels of assurance.

Scott suggests that we move the requirements clauses from column B to column C (e.g. B50 to C49)

Richard suggests moving the applicability checkboxes left of column A.

Ken will do some updates based on discussion.

Andrew sent out a normalized spreadsheet for discussion.

We will revisit this next week.

Core Criteria

Ken is working through the core criteria, to report using the spreadsheet.  RGW asks if any will be core at one level but not another. 

IDESG Framework

Scott and all please review, to discuss on the call next week.
