Action Item Review

See running table below

Staff Updates

  • Spotlight on TroopID was produced in June - their services, why they joined
  • Spotlight for July is offered to any member - plan is monthly 
LC Updates
  • Strategy meeting is in planning for summer - date TBD - major item will be discussion of staff support roles for member activities
  • Item raised that a WG is planned to support the Resilient Network Systems SOW to create criteria in support of their NSTIC Pilot project
  • WG/DG are all responsible for quarterly reports for group activity - these have fallen off - LC has decided that these should be changed into status updates by survey - more marketing focused - maybe monthly
Participant updates
  • None on this call


Alignment with SP 800-63 - Discussion
  • Minimal feedback received to date - PLEASE take the time to participate!
  • RGW commented that lack of feedback and critical peer review will potentially result in issues with the final document
  • Request to provide tools for readers to aid readability - A: Danger is that 800-63-2 intent might be accidentally changed
  • Potential criteria for US FICAM profile have been flagged
  • Suggestions made about how to make reviewing the material more streamlined
  • The informal mapping report will deliver: proposed changes to the SAC where any items in 800-63-2 that are not covered will have new Criteria; a new US FICAM Profile; the EZP document that demonstrates the mapping and linkages and rationale for the mapping. From that point, the normal process for updating the IAF will be used to incorporate proposed changes and maybe generate a new US FICAM Profile
  • <<Specific comments were discussed - see Editor's Comment Disposition forms for details>>
  • RGW to send out updated documents
  • Final chance for comments end of day Tuesday June 25 2013; comments to be reviewed on IAWG call 27 June 2013
