Dear Kantara Initiative Work Group Chairs,
This Wiki page initiates a Leadership Council eBallot to reduce the duration of the Public Review period for minor material (non risk inducing) and non-material editorial changes to IAWG Approved Recommendations.
Justification for classifying these changes as being ‘minor’:
Setting aside any purely editorial changes, revisions proposed to Kantara SACs are of the following form and the IAWG meeting of 2018-09-12 agreed that they are collectively only minor in magnitude, did not identify any IPR conflicts and therefore arguably fit for immediate release.
IAF-1410 has a strengthened requirement for stating and demonstrating availability that is already generally applicable – there is no fundamentally new requirement;
IAF-1430 has a number of valuable amendments to requirements which clarify those elements of NIST SP 800-63 rev.3 which have been found difficult to interpret, or to achieve (to the point of intractability in some cases). These amendments are relatively simple in nature but have the effect of making overall conformity easier to attain. Whilst one could argue their effect will have significant (rather than minor) benefits, the changes themselves are minor and delay caused by potentially 60 days consisting of public review and All Member Ballot are not warranted against the immediate benefit which CSPs are likely to gain from the clarity now provided.
IAF-1440 amendments, whilst fewer, should be subject to the arguments made for ’1430, with the additional comment that three requirements have been expressly defined as no longer applicable to identity-proofing functions where they were proving to be difficult to meet.
The IAWG therefore recommends release of these SAC revisions at the earliest opportunity on the basis that the revisions per se are minor in nature and do not encumber CSPs any more (and probably less) than do the existing criteria.
|Motion:||"To reduce the duration of the Public Review period to zero for the minor material and non-material editorial changes to IAWG Approved Recommendations regarding the Service Assessment Criteria updates of Kantara's 63-3 scheme - Kantara IAF-1410 Commonly-Applicable Service Assessment Criteria v1.4bis 2018-09-25; KIAF-1430 SP 800-63A Service Assessment Criteria v2.5bis 2018-09-25 and KIAF-1440 SP 800-63B Service Assessment Criteria v2.3bis 2018-09-25".|
