IAWG Direction for 2015

  • Andrew outlined the items from last week's meeting
  • RGW discussed prioritization: some things are too significant to ignore (NIST, FICAM, etc)
    • Should keep an eye on ISO 29003 (IDPV) - focused on only persons (not things)
    • It is likely that there will be a future project at ISO to address NPEs
  • The list of work items might end up being larger work items with sub-parts
  • Prioritization criteria: Need to consider how the items keep Kantara relevant to the market; other items could generate revenue; and also items that could cost money; need to end up with usable/pragmatic work products
  • RGW suggests that ID Proofing Standardization should be part of IAF Globalization
  • RGW suggests that an interpretation of ISO27001 for CSPs could be useful
  • RGW noted that 'Control Objectives' has a specific meaning in ISO27001 - suggests something like 'Common Objectives' or 'Common Control Requirements' might be more appropriate


Andrew to update the descriptive text for items in the list
