Organizational Updates
Executive Director and Staff Report

Director's Corner: 2017: December & the year in review

  • Membership Restructure changes to take effect January 4, 2018
  • Publications: The following 7 and earlier publications were downloaded over 700 times - demonstrably proving Kantara's contribution to the global identity and personal data communities - members and non members. 

    • UMA 2.0 finished development and just completed its 2nd 45-day IPR & public review before minor edits and official publication.
    • Consent Receipt v1.0 was published, v1.1 developed completed and is nearing the end of its 45-day IPR & public review period, with official publication in March.
    • SAML V2.0 Implementation Profile for Federation Interoperability finished and completes its 2nd 45-day IPR & public review on January 1st, superseding the eGovernment Implementation Profile V2.0 of 2011.
    • Report completed by the eGov Working Group on the 'Code of Conduct for Relying Parties for services to Government' is being prepared for official publication. 
    • Report completed and published by the IRM Working Group on 'Refining the Design Principles of Identity Relationship Management', building on implementation experience from the original report a year or so earlier with a similar name.  
    • Report completed and published from the Blockchain and Smart Contracts Discussion Group. Here is a quote from a large US federal agency employee. "It was a pleasure to read, both well written and informative. (I’ve been reading a lot of BAD blockchain papers and articles lately;-)). The discussion of Smart Contracts is the best I’ve read. I’m going to pass it around to try to counter all the crazy Smart Contracts will solve all our problems talk going around the [entity redacted ] right now".
    • Kantara's Service Assessment Criteria for 800-63-3 at IAL2 & AAL2 for future conformity assessment developed and currently out for 45-day IPR & public review.
LC Chair Report

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

  • Corporate members needed - membership dues offset operational costs and allow the Groups to operate with a 'No-Fee' participation structure.
  • Continues to be very strong interest in Consent management and Consent receipt
  • New Consent Management Solutions WG has been launched. Collecting Participants now - first meeting mid-January.

Launching New WG/DG's

New publication type
  • Andrew proposes to define a new type of Kantara publication: the 'Best Current Practice' Recommendation. This would follow the same intent as with IETF BCP documents. 
  • Currently the publication type: 'Recommendation' has sub-types of 'Recommendation' and 'Technical Specification'. The 'Best Current Practice' would become a third sub-type.
    "The BCP subseries of the RFC series is designed to be a way to standardize practices and the results of community deliberations.  
    A BCP document is subject to the same basic set of procedures as standards track documents and thus is a vehicle by which the IETF 
    community can define and ratify the community's best current thinking on a statement of principle or on what is believed to be the 
    best way to perform some operations or IETF process function."
    Ref: IETF BCP 9
