This Work Group operates under the Non-Assertion Covenant IPR option found as an appendix to IPR Policies V2.0 that Kantara operates.
The Group Participation Agreement memorializes your acknowledgment of the terms under which you participate in this Work Group. Every person who has acknowledged the GPA is listed in the Participant Roster, as a voting or non-voting participant.
However, there are circumstances, such as in-person workshops or calls where non-participant guests may be present who have not acknowledged the GPA for this Work Group.

Every person on this call is strongly encouraged to acknowledge the GPA for this Work Group prior to any form of participation.
If you have not, or do not wish to, please Note Well the following before you participate in any form.

1) in accordance with the Kantara Initiative IPR Policies V2.0, all contributions by voice are valid contributions alongside the much more preferred written contributions and while you still retain your IP, you grant Kantara copyright equivalent to the terms of the Non-Assertion Covenant without further condition or reservation.

2) it is your own IP and not another party's IP

3) such contributions are not confidential or otherwise subject to the limitation in its distribution, including pricing or other competitively sensitive information.

MOTION: To approve the last meeting minutes.

Discussion: None

Motion: Carried

Motion to approve (Fast track) Adding the BIT as a Kantara report

MOTION: To approve the creation of a WG Kantara Report based on the BIT work contributed by Paul Knowles included as supporting content. Paul Knowles to be the lead editor.

Moved by: John Wunderlich

Second: Iain Henderson

Discussion: Jim Pasquale says work needs a summary and conclusion. Colin Wallis With group approval of publishing the report, doing the document preparation, can be published without a 45 day voting for a specification (with LC vote to publish). Yusuf Khan talked about possible missing elements like medical identifiers or digital certificates and implications under different regulatory frameworks. Paul Knowlesresponded to the details. The intent of this list is to give people something to look at, not necessarily to demonstrate/prove regulatory compliance. Kenneth Klingensteinasks about the difference between PII and Sensitive Data (maybe a demo about obfuscation later). Paul Knowlessays 49 elements in BIT. More on the side of PII than sensitive data. A little broader because of the inclusion of things like free text fields. Schemas can flag fields as sensitive. Action up to the data controller. Kenneth Klingensteinasks if BIT is open to contributions from others. Paul KnowlesThe taxonomy has been pretty stable but is open to contributions if something comes up. Kenneth Klingensteinvolunteers to assist in document refinement - including processes for updating the list. Paul Knowlesmay be possible to use BIT as the basis for future development. Colin Wallisre: the question of IPR for the report. This group uses a non-assertion covenant so entities could use BIT as that basis for proprietary products, services etc. They would need to recognize Kantara but could assert IPR on their extension or IP so long as distinct from Kantara. Lisa LeVasseurasks if we are positioning this as a recommended best practice. Colin WallisNo, it's a report. John Wunderlich will assist on content.

4/09: Not much to go over. Jim Pasquale, please use consistent format and that GPA reading ritual is observed.

Iain setting up a blog or several blogs around the work he is doing around a stab at an 80/ 20 rule approach to building a standard list of:
- data types (i.e. general categories into which specific data attributes can be grouped)
- data purposes (i.e. general categories into which specific uses of data can be grouped)
- 6 legal bases/ authorities for data processing under GDPR

John Wunderlich suggests creating a first level page for Discussion Topics that might be of interest across projects.

4/02: Securing a meeting time using GMT1 or GMT2  process.

Regardless of ongoing or a single special project meeting, in order to accommodate All of the Kantara WG, you must start at the Main Kantara Calendar   Choose a primary and secondary date and time-based on the Main Calendar timezone (Eastern normally -5 GMT).

3/26 A reminder to all voting members on the importance of being on time joining the call. 


Kenneth Klingenstein We need to have an open discussion as to where Ken's work which spans multiple projects work should be placed. John Wunderlich has suggested creating a first level page for Discussion Topics that might be of interest across projects. I do not disagree nonetheless we need to decide how it will be structure, ie will it be open? or managed by one or two people, have sub-topic pages?, etc..

Mark Lizar believes he and his team are ready to present to the ISI WG his project proposal covering Key requirements On the next call 03/12

  • What the project will do
  • How long it will take
  • What are the outcomes and contingencies  

0 minCommon Accord"CommonAccord is an initiative to create global codes of legal transacting by codifying and automating legal documents, including contracts, permits, organizational documents, and consents." We may want to include elements of common accord in some of our work, but note that it is under an open-source license, so we will be having a discussion about how to include while maintaining this work on the Kantara WG IPR
1 minGPAAllTom raises the point that signing the GPA didn't point to the actual agreement. Leadership will look at this to fix it.
