Meeting Notes:

1. Roll Call---Non Quorate Mtg
Because quorum was not met, previous meetings' notes and minutes cannot be approved.

2. Nomination for WG Chair ballot reviewed--- Anna.
John Bradley was the sole nomination. Motioned by Mary Ruddy. Seconded by Rich Furr. Remaining leadership and volunteer positions were highlighted; a work group secretary is needed.

20100623-01Anna---formulate a secret ballot and circulate to the list for chairman vote.

3. Use Case update---John Bradley
Scott has posted to the wiki. Leif and John have added comments.

4. Federation Management Applications (JANUS + ?)
a. Cisco has expressed interest in joining but concerned about the IPR policy; not appropriate publishing standards due to the absence of a patent section.
b. John Bradley highlighted a project of interest...
c. The work group discussed having APIs [Application Programming Interface] over various databases vs one monolithic database

  • Consider separating the assessment layers from the metadata [operational and policy separation in repository]
  • Use Janus tool and directly insert assessment into metadata vs. operational/certification database
  • API: how to ensure interoperability at the run/time level? what software instrumentation will be used to produce metadata?
  • Joni and Drummond in favor of pursuing the API route
  • Operational databases for federations may need to reach out to other certification databases
  • Termination is part of the lifecycle of certification
  • API between databases could be XML and SAML to conform to modern protocol; digestible by existing relying parties to ease initial deployment
