July started Kantara Treasurer Robin, Leadership Council Chair Andrew and myself at EEMA
, (follow them @EEMA1) our premier European partner's conference in London where we presented on the changing nature of conformity assessment and how the emerging domain of data ethics could play an increasing role. Robin's work on data ethics is very thought provoking in a variety of ways, not least of which how we create an assessment scheme and Trust Mark from it! Hard tho' it is, it is in the right place because this is what we do..
The second week of July saw our 3 performers in our Federally funded KIPI Applied Research and Development program wowd the audience as they showcased their innovations in DC under the watchful gaze of Kantara President Allan amongst hundreds of others. Follow @Steve_Lockstep, @nynymike and John Fessler with Exponent, to keep up to date with the fantastic innovations they are developing for our industry and the world.
July also saw Kantara's public announcment of its intent
to develop conformity assessment, approval and an additional Mark for NIST SP 800-63-3
for identity & credential service providers whose solutions are utilized by relying parties online. Our first project planning meetings were well attended, but there is always room for more volunteers on the IAWG
- folks who are willing to contribute, analyse and review. It's a great way to fill in those balmy summer days!
As I write this, we are deep into planning our pre-conference workshop in Seattle, the exclusive curtain-raiser to Kuppinger Cole's Consumer Identity World Tour 2017
. See you there!
