Continuation and progress on plans to use ID Proofing and Authentication moving toward "Authorization" Levels of Assurance, e.g. What level of authorization assurance does a relying party require to access or act upon health data in its variable levels of sensitivity?

New/other business:

From Tom J: We tentatively approved (3 of 6 is not quorum) work on a specification for a Mobile Assurance Statement. This is to replace the reference to a "Software Statement" that is currently in the Distributed Assurance Specification. Feedback is appreciated. Vote at the next meeting.

The Open ID foundation is working to build a consensus with the Distributed Identity Foundation on a speclet/profile for a Self Issued Identifier. I am the editor for that effort which can be viewed here: (Comments on that to me or to the github repo.)  

Not discussed (but referred to in discussion of other agenda items. )
