Organizational Updates
Executive Director and Staff Report
  • See Directors Corner post from December 31
  • Board/LC strategy meeting @ RSA week - will there be a remote dial in? Colin will check.
    • Post was summarized in the Members Newsletter last week
    • Reviewed the challenging 2016 year. Despite that, Kantara did a lot with what they have. Not many organizations build - Kantara should be proud of what they do.
    • Challenges - need members, funding, sponsors.
  • Colin has been working on the non-assertion covenant draft and IPR policies, consistent with bylaws. Colin to bring back to the group next month to review, and decide if a ballot is needed.
    • Once Board approves, member companies can notify their legal departments of the change.
  • Staff is working on budgets for Board meeting tomorrow. If working groups need resources, will need to secure sponsor funding.
  • Oliver will host a discussion around a portal to nail down requirements. Create advisory committee.
LC Chair Report

2016 - a good year that built interest and new energy and new participation

2017 - a good year to harness that energy and start the positive spiral

Andrew's Plans for LC 2017:

  • Drive the creation of the Kantara Initiative Global Collaboration and Innovation Center portal as a focal point for members/non-members
    • Publication platform for DG/WG outputs
    • Single point of discovery for Kantara outputs and programs
  • Focus on the value of Kantara membership to members and participants
    • The benefits of membership over and above DG/WG participation
  • Support and growth of technical communities
    • Identity Assurance, Identity & Access Federations
    • Information Sharing (right now this is GDPR instigated, but the community is much broader)
    • Personal Data Ecosystems
    • Blockchain (which slice?)
    • Smart Contracts (which slice?)
    • Sovereign / autonomous actors (is this viable?)
    • Also, support for joint-effort work between different DG/WG
  • Refinement of Kantara Operating Procedures to accurately reflect WG/DG scope of activities
    • Clarification of types of Kantara publications
      • Recommendations, Reports exist - what are Technical Specifications?
    • Discussion of 'maintenance mode' groups v 'development mode' groups
    • Finalization of IPR contributor covenant
    • Formalization of use of GitHub (and other) repositories for Kantara material

Overall: Drive value creation and value capture for Kantara members and participants

  • Eve reported a person who was not clear on member mechanics - need to refine the membership pitch, perhaps adding a video/slideshare to the homepage. Remove friction and pain points to becoming a member.
  • Mark would like to see onboarding document as part of the WG operating resources.
  • Kantara has a trusted brand, inherited from Liberty, perhaps invest in media around principles and how they align with business schools to attract more members.

  • Andrew will release this plan to the group for input.

Stay tuned for discussion drafts about:

  • How communities could choose to document standard practices and evolve into voluntary codes of practice or conformity assessment programs.
  • Options for WG/DG publications categories
  • Ideas for the portal structure

Face 2 Face member, DG/WG meetings calendar

  • Want to start holding plenary meetings in 2017
    • Both member-only (like an AGM-style) plus all-comers style
  • Want to post a regular calendar of F2F meeting opportunities
    • Send me details of recurring industry/government events that we could meet at

  • Discussion around Kantara producing its own event, co-producing/operating, or producing a workshop at another event - a day before or a day after an existing event.


New Business
WG/DG Updates

Administrative Reminders/Requests

  • Annual review of DG/WG Charters
  • Annual verification of voting roster and quorum determination
  • Roadmaps for 2017
    • What publications are in the works?
    • Is the group in development mode or maintenance mode?
  • Invite your vice-chairs and secretaries to attend the LC call

  • Colin offered report to eGov
  • Codes of conduct, minimum practice guides, standards of practice, body of knowledge are being produced. Could Kantara take eGov's code of conduct and build it into a standard?


  • Looking for a way to move forward, across Kantara. Sal will share with this group for a conversation within the LC



  • UMA has started a roadmap and is targeted for end of Q1




eGov WG

Launching New WG/DG's


  • Re-start the Privacy and Public Policy WG
  • Reformulation of the Consent and Information Sharing WG into a flat-ish hierarchy of related sub-WGs & project teams
    • oversight working group around information sharing, and several sub-working groups with project teams.
  • If there is a project to be done, create a ream with any interested parties from the working groups.
    • Example - consent receipt collaboration
  • Cross collaboration
  • Create a group to produce position papers
