Election for IAWG Leadership

We have had a volunteer for secretary, we hope that he can make it to next week's call.

The changes involve less R&D work and more maintenance of the IAF. The group responsible for making updates to the IAF, SAC as well as doing reviews and critiques of other assurance frameworks and other trust frameworks.

Angela has the comment on Ken's remarks, agrees to review and join for discussion next week.  We will hold off on the call for now.

Discussion of the need to uniquely identify clauses in the requirements.

Ken Crowl shared his list of his organization's concerns with Ken Dagg, he will share them forward to the group to add to the discussion.

Scott Shorter included a comment in support of the flow charts / decision trees included in 800-63-3.

Discussion of requirement for document verification for all remote proofing.  Call for a need for intermediate verification options that don't require the full rigor of IAL2 (remote + document verification). Technical challenges to document verification.
