Recap of IDESG

Andrew Hughes reported from the plenary, last week was the 12th plenary in Atlanta at the GTRU facility. Developing requirements that will feed to a self-attestation approval program for joining the NSTIC ecosystem. OASIS worked to prepare a number of drafts that were positively accepted. Mentioned Marc-Anthony Signorino as new executive director of IDESG.   InfoTrust has an electronic credential based service based on DMV data for access to state e-gov services.  Cathy noted that there isi work to be done on the developing the components in the functional model.  Overall positive plenary.  Also, IDESG is looking for donors.

Joni has a question - could we think of this report in the Kantara Initiative context?  How do we frame that in terms of this group and what we do next?  Andrew - biggest intersection point is at the point of recognizing entities that wish to be included in the NSTIC identity ecosystem. It's a fairly straightforward qualification process so far for organizations to support NSTIC principles.  Jack Seuss and Andrew are chair and vice chair of the trust framework committee, working to ensure a faster path for federation operators to come on board.  Andrew suggests that may be a point of interface between IDESG and Kantara, this work will be over the next 4 months or so.

Staff Report

Joni reports from International Identity Summit in Mexico, government to government communications on identity management and identity assurance.  US, UK, CA, NZ, Mexico, Denmark, Japan. Industry day allows connection between industry and government representatives, so that was well attended.  Presentation on the work of the IAWG and the trust framework program, interest from governments including Australia who has been studying the framework for some time. Presentations from a number of KI members, including SecureKey Experian and ForgeRock.


Ken reports that the ARB did meet, we can discuss that item during any other bus

Task Priorities Review

Discussion of the attached spreadsheet.


Ken suggests we revisit active review and update cycle and privacy considerations next week.


Discussion of IAF 1600 and IAF 1800 moving from the IAWG vs the ARB

Ken was asked by ARB whether the 1600 assessor qualifications document could be moved from IAWG to ARB responsibility for the document.  RGW adds that ARB also requested 1800 rules for assurance assessments.  Justification is that they are ARB operational documents rather than being trust framework provider related criteria.


To be clear, the documents will remain within the Kantara IAF, but authorship will pass to the ARB.
