    WG/DG Updates

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

    OTTO WG - no report

    UMA WG - Eve gave an update on the IETF contribution status. The OAuth group at IETF is wrapping their heads around the possibilities. Eve working on helping them to understand the use cases. Incorporating Bertrand Carlier's blog post into the HEART webinar. Eve has offered to run UMA exploration sessions at IETF 105 in Montreal - demos, many participants, etc. UK Pensions Dashboard - understands that UMA fits the purpose & that there are some specific issues to be resolved & alignment with OpenBanking . Eve is re-inforcing with UMA WG that they must advocate for what they want or else the standards might shift in unexpected ways.

    IA WG - Finalizing the updated Overview document. Looking forward to increasing participation from new and current CSPs.

    CIS WG - Work proceeds on the Kantara Privacy Control Panel demo - scheduled for presentation at EIC, Identiverse, MyData (applied), other conferences.

    Consent Solutions WG - Work proceeds on a lightweight Gap Analysis doc setting out current and future state of consent management.

    eGov WG - no report

    FI WG - Nominations for Chair/Vice closes soon. Preparing to receive the next piece of work.

    IDPV DG - Calls to resume soon to improve use cases and do some analysis - for further contribution to ISO study period. Also to discuss how to sustain the body of work going forward.

    Launching New WG/DG's

    New publication type
    • 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
