Discussion meetings, what are the topics you would like to see at the Discussion meetings.  

Suggested Topics for the next Steering Discussion meeting:

  1. A session that takes deep dive into the Blog post The ToIP Trust Spanning Protocol taskforce, have all the steering committee members ask questions and discuss the implications of what this means.
  2. The positioning of Trust Over IP in the marketplace. The marketplace is changing. We need to make sure ToIP is projecting in the right light. Understanding where ToIP fits in the landscape and how do we promote what we want to promote to position our organization at the stature that we want it to be.
    1. The first two topics to be added to the agenda for the next Steering Discussion Meeting.
  3. A briefing from an expert Viky Manaila from the Intesi Group on the European Digital Identity Wallet reference Architecture framework when it is published. (Most likely to be published by our second Discussion meeting of the year)
  4. Standing Topic – monitoring and talking about the different sets of protocol format discussions going on in the Trust Spanning Protocol, ex: the over emphasis on credentials. How do these other protocol’s fit into the stack.

Open Wallet Foundation Associate Sponsorship - discussion (15 min)

Does ToIP want to become an Associate Sponsor of the Open Wallet Foundation?

Judith Fleenor opens the discussion with what membership in Open Wallet Foundation would be for Trust over IP and what we would get with the membership.

The Associate Sponsor category of sponsorship is limited to Associate Sponsors of LFEU. The Governing Board may set additional criteria for sponsoring the OWF as an Associate Sponsor. If the Associate Sponsor is itself a membership or participation organization, Associate Sponsorship in the OWF does not confer any privileges or rights to the members or participants of the Associate Sponsor. Sponsors will be entitled to participate in OWF general meetings, initiatives, events, and any other activities; and identify themselves as sponsors of the OWF supporting the OWF community.

Consensus of the steering committee would be to hold off on filling out any of the paperwork for membership until we have more information on the what the Open Wallet Foundation mission is.

Action Item: Judith Fleenor to let Daniella Barbosa, Todd Benzies and Scott Nicolas know that we are still interested in joining but need more time to review. If something changes with the date of the launch to let us know right away. Judith Fleenor will also find out what does it mean to join the LF as an Associate sponsor. Judith will also request the LF Membership agreement in PDF format to be reviewed by the Steering committee.  

Action Item: Judith Fleenor to add joining the Open Wallet Foundation to the agenda for the next Steering Plenary meeting in February.
