KI position paper: NSTIC Steering Group Formation v0.2

Comment pulled from note to LC from Joni Brennan 10-July-2012

Kantara will need to understand who will attend to represent Kantara (I plan to at least) and which stakeholder group Kantara plans to identify with for the NSTIC Management Council formation.  One group must be chosen for the Management Council voting but beyond that Kantara can get involved in any activity. 

Questions to consider:

  • Which group should KI affiliate with of the possible stakeholder groups? That will/may be necessary to be considered for the NSTIC Management Council.
    • might be appropriate to aim for the At-Large position if they still exist rather than attempt to pigeonhole itself in to one group
  • What direction should KI be voting in?
  • If someone is going to nominate KI to be part of the management council, would it be appropriate for KI to accept?
  • KI will offer the KI ARB and IRB programs to fill the potential accreditation needs for NSTIC.  What else should we offer/ask?

It is highly unlikely that they will force any decisions to be made between now and their August meeting, which gives the LC some time to consider the questions above.

eGov could be in either RP, International Coordination, or Interoperability

Need to schedule two standalone meetings to discuss further, one before Aug 13, one after the Aug 13 meeting; HF to schedule

  • Aug 13 attendance: Tom, Colin S, Joni (Joni to represent KI)

WG Updates

  • P3WG - continuing to have a variety of guest presenters at the meeting to discuss a variety of topics, which has been helpful in stimulating discussion; in off-weeks continuing to work through issues on privacy assessment criteria doc with respect to FICAM
  • IAWG - very active time; coming to the end of the Kantara Assessment report review; discussing pseudonymous credential; looking at value proposition assoc with the IAF and leveraging the work of Kantara across different use cases and sectors; looking at a revision to align with 863-1; relying party considerations and guidelines is coming up for review in Q4
  • AMDG - working on draft charter to turn this in to a working group, should have a draft by Aug 7-8
  • Consumer ID WG - no activity to report; need to discuss if group should continue to exist; consider transitioning to become a Discussion Group or transition to become a discussion point within another working group; original idea was that this group would cover identity theft, which had been a topic of Liberty Alliance

BoT Liason Report

  • Had a meeting in which they awarded accreditation for Europoint; high level agenda items currently under discussion include financial reporting and long-term viability, certification program marketing, value propositions, review of governance and by-laws


  • Secretary transition in 2 weeks; HF is taking on the technical support role for Kantara and will need to transition the secretary role to a new elected person
  • No labels
