Greetings folks
I hope the summer has brough you some rest and relaxation. July started Kantara Treasurer Robin, Leadership Council Chair Andrew and myself at EEMA, our premier European partner's conference in London where we presented on the changing nature of conformity assessment and how the emerging domain 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! But it is in the right place because this is what we do..(smile).  
The following week our 3 performers in our Federally funded KIPI Applied Research and Development program wowed the audience as they showcased their innovations in DC under the watchful gaze of Kantara President Allan amongst hundreds of others. 
The big news in the newsletter is this: "In light of its recent publication, Kantara intends 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. We hope to have it in operation in less than 12 months. We are also making it easier for operating Trust Frameworks all around the world to more easily map ‘theirs to ours’ by developing an open risk catalogue.  This multi-faceted project needs your help to truly succeed. It needs your organization’s sponsorship and directed funds and it needs the volunteer resources of subject matter experts - be they individuals such as you, or organizations you know or work for. Whether you are a Credential Service Provider looking for early adoption and transition, or a Relying Party looking to support the project to help move the industry forward, Contact us and be part of this new and exciting journey".  There's not much more to say at this moment in time, except to observe that it stands as yet another testament to Kantara's leadership in the industry and the identity community it serves. 
Kind Regards,
Colin
