New Business
Proposals for new groups
  • John Wunderlich - has circulated to the LC List a draft DG Charter proposal with the intent of creating a report on: "Protecting Privacy and Identity in mobile Driver License Ecosystems"
    • This originates from discussions with the STA (Secure Technology Alliance) about how to support the ISO 18013-5 mDL App that is heading towards publication as an International Standard
    • The ISO 18013-5 document envisions Issuing Authority, mDL Holder and mDL Verifier as actors. There is a 'privacy and security' annex that outlines the measures taken in the spec and provides guidance on how to ensure that the Holder's privacy is respected/maintained. In the ISO WG there is high awareness of data protection and anti-observeability and anti-correlation - it's an interesting discussion.
  • Please review it and send questions back to the LC list
  • We'll see an electronic ballot to approve/reject the DG creation proposal within a week

WG/DG Updates20 minutes

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


UMA WG  - Working on the Policy Manager Extension - standardizes interfaces/interactions on the RO side of the protocol - a significant development coming from a vendor-implementer (Alec Laws of IDENTOS) of UMA. IDENTOS has deployed, in effect, APIs from the AS and RS towards a client that privacy-protects what those servers know about the RO by pseudonymizing the interaction between Alice and any number of AS's that she has in her domain. Alice has a directed pseudonymized identifier towards each AS.
More vendors coming into the fold too. Has potential connections to the Verifiable Credentials world. The DIF Secure Data Storage WG wants to hear about UMA.

Launching New WG/DG's

New publication type0 minutes
  • 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
