LC Chair Report

The Kantara Initiative is the global consortium improving trustworthy use of identity and personal data through innovation, standardization and good practice.

  • Big push revving up to close out the year
    • Project is underway between Assurance Review Board and Identitiy Assurance WG to create a certification based on NIST SP 800-63-3
      • Working team started to create this adjustment aiming for first quarter of 2018. Board has approved the public announcement that Kantara is moving forward with it.
      • there is interest in UMA certification
    • Project to start soon in FedInterop WG on creating an SP 800-63-3 update to the eGov SAML profile
    • Consent & Information Sharing WG is plugging away at Consent Receipt v1.1 - expect public review period later in 2017
    • UMA WG is working hard to process comments from their public review period on UMA 2.0 - might need to do another 45-day public review - stay tuned this month
    • Kantara Board and Staff are ramping up for a Membership drive - as Kantara increases the level of activity in the WGs and DGs, more funds are needed to sustain operations
    • The Liaison sub-committee of the Board is preparing submissions to ISO SC 27 on study periods for core digital identity management standards. The outcome of these study periods will shape the nature of ID Proofing, ID Assurance, Authentication Levels and federation for the foreseeable future.
    • Identity Relationship Management is deliberating on what the next publication could be - there is some interest (from me and others) to investigate how Graph data technologies can be used to represent relationships and feed into 'traditional' authorization systems
    • New work to start soon on Requirements for Consent Management Systems, as an early step towards creating a certification for systems that manage notice and consent for information collection and processing
    • Blockchain and Smart Contracts Report to Kantara to be formally published in August - a marketing campaign will accompany the publication
    • Kantara is always in a membership campaign. Please encourage colleagues and customers to join as an organizational member.

WG/DG Updates

Administrative Reminders/Requests: Please ensure your WG and DG charters are reasonably current. These are supposed to be reviewed annually.


  • OTTO WG - Is slow with the summer and travel, but circling the finish line. Vocabulary is close to finished, and have a draft that needs to be reviewed. Realistically could be finished this year. There is an opportunity to present at Internet 2 event in San Francisco. 5 minute lightning talk.
  • UMA WG once public comments seen and applied, there may be a second public review period. Eve will have a call tomorrow with the group to confirm. Colin recommended a shorter review period because the IPR has not been challenged. Focus the review on the pieces that have been changed. Ask Andy Kurtzman for his opinion on the issue of editorial vs technical revisions - if they need a full 45 day review. Email a subset of the group that has been on the calls, collect an email thread to ask them to confirm that they have not contributed IPR that they wouldn't want Kantara to have. Get legal advice about this wording.
