This Privacy and Public Policy (P3) WG operates under the Kantara Initiative IPR Policies - Option Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike


The vision of the Kantara Initiative is to ensure secure, identity-based, online interactions while preventing misuse of personal information so that networks will become privacy protecting and more natively trustworthy environments. This vision is translated into the mission to foster identity community harmonization, interoperability, innovation, and broad adoption through the development of open identity specifications, operational frameworks, education programs, deployment and usage best practices for privacy-respecting, secure access to online services. The Kantara Initiative is an international organization with participation and membership from countries including, but not limited to, Canada, Germany, Austria, United States, France, New Zealand, Denmark, Sweden and Japan.
Because privacy is a core principle of Kantara work, the Initiative has established a Privacy and Public Policy Work Group. This Work Group is intended to ensure that Kantara contributes to better privacy outcomes for users, data custodians and other stakeholders, by defining privacy-related principles and good practice applicable to a broad range of prevalent technology platforms. Read the full charter.

New to the Work Group? Please make sure you review the charter, Kantara IPR policies  and the following short documents from the ISTO about Anti-Trust Guidelines.

  • ISTO Anti-Trust Guidelines (Dec 2008) - 2-page summary explaining implications for Kantara meetings.


The P3WG has formed a sub-group to focus specifically on development of the Kantara Initiative Privacy Framework.  This Privacy Framework will define criteria for privacy and ID proofing at Levels of Assurance 1, 2 and non-crypto 3.  Once this Privacy Framework is in an approved state the Kantara Initiative Assurance Accreditation and Certification program intends to adopt this piece of work as a means to certify privacy and identity proofing requirements. Additionally we intend to submit this Privacy Framework to the US ICAM program as well for input and potential ICAM adoption.  If this work interests you please join the Privacy Framework Sub-Group mail list.  NOTE: you must be a member of the P3WG to be eligible to join the sub-group. 


We welcome your participation!

NOTE: If you're already a part of the P3 and join the sub-team list please advise staff so they can un-moderate your subscription. 

*Please also note that the WG's mailing list ?[wg-p3(at)kantarainitiative(dot)org] is an open list and is archived. Therefore, please only use the mailing list for information which you wish to essentially put into the public domain.*
