In my view a Trust Framework encompasses the broader trust relationship under which a federated exchange of identity would occur.  So the assurance of the identity bound to the credential is one component.  The privacy concerns of the transaction would be another component.  The legal and liability aspect could be another component.  But the Trust Framework would consider ALL components that would facilitate trust relationship and federated exchange of identity information.

I'd like to make sure I understand the difference between a Trust Framework and an Identity Assurance Framework.  My understanding is that an Identity Assurance Framework is concerned strictly with providing assurance about the identity of an individual (and perhaps other entities as well), whereas a Trust Framework is concerned with providing assurance of more generalized claims.  So in practical terms, the Service Assessment Criteria for an IAF is strictly limited to identity proofing of individuals (or other entities), whereas the corresponding criteria for a TF is concerned with verification of other non-identifier attributes that define a claim.  Other than that, they are basically the same.

Is that correct?  Or are there other differences?

		Hi Eve,
		Attached is the draft TFMM WG charter that we briefly spoke about yesterday on the LC call.  Rainer would be the convener and he feels the draft charter is ready to move forward in the LC.  John Bradley has also been close to the development of this charter and John may represent to answer questions in the case that Rainer is not available to do so.  
		When you have a moment please have a review of the Draft charter and advise if/when it's ready to move forward in LC.  Also worth noting that the stakeholders of this group are already in a sense 'working' so I think it's fair to say that they'd like to move forward as speedily as possible to form this WG for the focused purpose of developing the TFMM. 
		Please advise if there are questions or with confirmation that the charter is ready to move forward. 
		Thanks much,
