Organizational Updates
Executive Director and Staff Report

Director's Corner: 2017: September

  • New GoTo Meeting (GTM) lines
  • Changed Time Zone Converter to comply with accessibility: switch from to, which is WCAG 2.0 compatible.
  • Membership Restructure changes to take effect January 4, 2018
  • LC to review Accenture document with credit as reviewer to Kantara - Colin to send
LC Chair Report

The Kantara Initiative is the global consortium improving trustworthy use of identity and personal data through innovation, standardization and good practice.

  • Corporate members needed - membership dues offset operational costs and allow the Groups to operate with a 'No-Fee' participation structure.
  • Kantara is highly visibile at the events our members attend - leads to good ideas for new work and coverage areas
  • Very strong interest in Consent management and Consent receipt
  • Board of Directors will start planning for 2018 fiscal/calendar year in October - Groups that have publications or work projects on their roadmaps should inform the board (via LC) about plans and support requirements.
  • New WG starting soon to develop "Consent Management Solutions - Best Current Practices" publication, hopefully leading to assessment criteria and certification/trust mark. Will complement the Consent Receipt Specification work.

Launching New WG/DG's
  • Discussions ongoing on the draft charter to launch a WG to publish "Consent Management Solutions - Best Current Practices". Sponsorship dollars have been committed to contract an editor and other resources.
    • Draft charter looks good
  • Work has started to draft a charter for a new Blockchain WG (Hardjono, Maler, others)

New publication type
  • Andrew proposes to define a new type of Kantara publication: the 'Best Current Practice' Recommendation. This would follow the same intent as with IETF BCP documents. 
  • Currently the publication type: 'Recommendation' has sub-types of 'Recommendation' and 'Technical Specification'. The 'Best Current Practice' would become a third sub-type.
    "The BCP subseries of the RFC series is designed to be a way to standardize practices and the results of community deliberations.  A BCP document is subject to the same basic set of procedures as standards track documents and thus is a vehicle by which the IETF community can define and ratify the community's best current thinking on a statement of principle or on what is believed to be the best way to perform some operations or IETF process function."
