|15 mins||Governance frameworks for governments||Chairs|
Inspired by the recent IRS / ID.me controversy (about which Avast published this blog post), and also the efforts underway in BC Gov, Ontario, and the EU Digital Identity Wallet initiative, discuss talk what we might specifically work on to support governance frameworks for governments.
IRS scrapped selfies for account verification.. Blowback as a result of a privacy impact assessment. ID.me was not tested by IRS. Too accelerated use of biometric technology. Need governmental guidance. Driven by fraud cases. IRS wanted quick fix.
Drummond and the Avast team posted a blog on the topic: https://blog.avast.com/irs-and-digital-identity-avast. ToIP was cited in the post. The posture was to promote open standards and verifiable credentials instead of federated identity. Biometric storage by a private entity is a hazard to citizen privacy.
Kyle shared that BC Gov has a Services Card credential that also requires biometric proof that can include live video sessions. The key differences are:
Drummond closed by saying that Avast is working with the government of one small country (which can't be named yet) on a ToIP ecosystem governance framework for the entire country. So we already have the attention of nation states, and we should continue to develop the tools governments need to adopt ToIP-compliant governance frameworks.
|20 mins||Learning Pathway Outline Drafting||Carly Huitema|
Carly explained more about how learning pathways work and why the Ecosystem Foundry WG would like other WGs and TFs to participate in creating them. In particular she and Judith want to see GSWG start on a learning pathway outline because we have the most content to share.
Both Scott and Drummond said that their new employers had a strong interest in such educational materials, so they committed to find resources to help with the development of the learning pathways.
ACTION: Chairs will work with Carly Huitema and Judith Fleenor to establish a Learning Pathways Task Force for GSWG that can be coordinated with the EFWG.
|5 mins||Meeting cadence||Chairs|
Given that we have completed our "first-generation" deliverables — and that some of us now need to focus our attention on completing the ToIP Technology Architecture Specification (the final piece of the "Core Four"), should we go to a monthly meeting schedule until we are ready to begin work on layer-specific governance framework templates?
We quickly agreed that:
DECISION: We will keep our bi-weekly meeting schedule, but use every other week to developing our learning pathway materials.
|5 mins||Chairs||Our next meeting (in 2 weeks) will be the first meeting of the Learning Pathways Task Force.|
