  • OASIS eGov to act as a funnel/focal point for all Kantara to input views with an eGov element into various OASIS standardisation efforts
  • OASIS eGov in the process of drafting a White Paper on the Pitfalls of eGovernment
  • OASIS eGov has quite a strong European representation

  • eGov BoF at Marriott/RSA was successful if lower attendance than indicated. Attendees were BC Govt, SUN, NTT, FuGen, CA, NZ Govt
  • 'Objectives' email thread following the BoF had assisted in clarifying the scope of the draft
  • Great progress made on the draft during the Portland week, with 2 lively and well attended one hour calls.  Tuesday's call focussed on discussion of   Open Issues in Appendix A.  Scott was able to release a Rev 0.2 between the Tuesday and Thursday call, making Thursday's call focussed on context specifc questions. 
  • Bob raised the requirement for <Language> in SAML. Scott said the requirement needed to be captured by all governments that need it and submitted to OASIS SSTC
  • Bob asked for feedback on Canada's early draft deployment profile (for those things that need to be constrained from SAML 2.0 specs and eGov 1.5 profile), particularly the format and layout. Colin agreed to provide an example of the format from NZ's meesaging specs.
