Scott moves the approved the IAWG charter draft as reviewed on today's meeting and submit to leadership council for review. Andrew seconds the motion.  With no further discussion the motion passes.


A discussion of the goals of the work item to identify the objectives of the criteria, there's a second portion not covered in this section. Three deliverables: list of objectives, list of concerns with the current SAC, estimate to.  Ken moves to approve it, to pass it along to Leadership Council. Scott seconds the .


Received several interested parties that are seeking funding, one existing project, two applications. Five potential candidates for projects in the process of applications. Ken asked if there's a final date for receipt of white papers, the idea is to get most of them by June. DHS would like to get the projects by June.  Andrew explains that this is another call for proposals, for novel research with usable results.  The program is an open call.m program details are available of the Kantara  wiki.  

privacy criteria 

  • Good discussion last week. Ken will be talking to folks from GEANT  they talked about a code of conduct. Ken will talk to them.  Jenn Behrens will come to the meeting next week.
  • Question from Ken about whether Privacy criteria should be tied to level of assurance. Andrew responds that for 800-63 is about strength of ID proofing, so it may not be related to privacy.  Assurance is evidence that you're taking the measures.  Higher levels of assurance may require more effort to verify.  With respect to the Kantara publications, it's hard to say.  It seems to be applicable across levels of assurance.
  • Scott agrees with Andrew that.
  • Adam supports the development of privacy criteria.
  • Invitation to Jenn Behrens
  • With respect to updates on 800-63 coming out, we will keep an eye out for announcements and play it by ear

New discussion groups

anyone with ideas for new groups should get in touch with Andrew Hughes 


we will start the process for a new version of the SAC - Richard Wilsher sent the lest editors version, will check that the change approved.  Half the meeting on new version of SAC next week.
