HIAWG Deliverable


    • Joni Brennan, David Kibbe, Lee Barrett, Pete Palmer, Andrew Hughes
The HIAWG will conduct research and analysis of the feasibility of optimization, harmonization, consolidation or merging of the policy, process and standards requirements, approval programs and associated assessment criteria related to IDP/V of individuals by Approved/Accredited CSP or RA organizations. The feasibility study report will present a small number of viable options and make recommendations to the boards of DirectTrust, EHNAC and Kantara Initiative for consideration and action.
"The overarching objective for the HIAWG work is to find ways to reduce financial and work burden on organizations seeking Approval under DTAAP, Kantara Initiative and FICAM TFS programs. By decreasing burden on our shared customers, DirectTrust, EHNAC and Kantara seek to increase the shared value of our respective programs."
  • HIAWG Participants agreed that: Starting with analysis of the RA Assessments and program processes is worth doing.
  • To get the Feasibility Study work kicked off fast, discussed getting the 4 or 6 primary roles represented: (expert in Approval/Assessment Programs as related to IDP/V; expert as Assessed entity as related to IDP/V) for each of (EHNAC/DTAAP/DirectTrust; Kantara; Federal Bridge CA)
  • Primary contributor assignments below (of course everyone on the call has experience in many boxes, but to keep things efficient it would be helpful to focus on one in the early content rounds):
    • Jerry Cox: familiar with Federal Bridge CP Identity Proofing processes
    • Rich Furr (as Verizon): can provide the Verizon perspective for Kantara Assessee 
    • Peter Alterman (as Kantara Assurance Review Board member): can take on the Kantara Assessment Program front
    • Ron (as EHNAC assessor): DTAAP assessor role
    • Pete (as Medallies): DTAAP Assessee
    • Pete as Relying Party 
    • SAFE BioPharma is there for the FBCA processes if we need to align there too
