WG/DG Updates

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

IRM WG - Still talking about next work items




IA WG - Now that the SAC for NIST 800-63-3 are published, will start to plan out what comes next in the work plan. Refresh of other IAF documents.

CIS WG - Now that Consent Receipt v1.1 is on its way to publication, now discussing the work plan for 2018.

eGov WG -



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

  • Intent to have a Kantara Annual General Meeting
  • Intent to have a Member Plenary
  • Both to happen the day prior to EIC conference somewhere in Munich - Colin is seeking meeting space at a Member location
