Digital surveillance is inherently untrustworthy and transparency over surveillance is missing for people. Surveillance transparency is necessary to achieve human trustworthiness, and control independent of technology. There is no trust for human tech only trust frameworks for enterprises and tech itself. In the work here privacy is understood as human/individual centric, not business, legal and technical centric. This design rule is critical for trustworthy (including digital identity) infrastructure. For this purpose this task force is tasked with specifying a credential that can be used with and for any identity management technology, including SSI, using International ISO/IEC standards and related Kantara Specifications.
This task force is tasked with the specification of the Privacy Controller Credential for accountable (to the individual) surveillance transparency, providence and accountability.
Process in progress:
Define the assurance required to extend decentralized semantic governance for dynamic data controls to support privacy and trustworthy/regulated/surveillance a:
This working effort specifies a regulatory controller from existing standards that apply and can be mapped to any legal authorization for data processing.
This credential is comprised of the legal entity name and accountability profile as specified by regulation utilizing ISO/IEC 29100 Privacy & Security Techniques. An open (no-fee, no barrier) and international standard from ISO (the Internationational Organization for Standardization) and the IEC (International ElectroTechnical Commission). The use of this standard for the creation of records and receipts is critical for scaleable and interoperable Decentralized Data Governance interoperability between technical domains and legal jurisdictions.
What is this for:
This specification is for the regulation and governance of surveillance and digital identity technology independently of any digital identifiers or trust frameworks. The objective is for the this specification to work with and enhance digital surveillance assurances already provided by work in ToiP. The credentialling process benchmarks the privacy, security and compliance of digital identity technologies with international standards.
The aim of this task force outputs is to create a specification and by so doing implement ISO/IEC international standards to enable regulatory interoperability with human controls and transparency that scale for any authorized surveillance context. To do this, this effort builds upon standards, incorporating additional technical specifications in order to support ToiP community efforts.
Challenges being addressed with the PCC specification have been raised in the Kantara ANCR WG, W3C DPV CG, ISO/IEC 27560 Technical Committee's, CIO Council, DIACC Special Interest Group, IETF GNAP, and VC's with DiD's. The overarching objective is therefore to provide a specification that supports these community efforts.
The specification shall provide:
Decentralized Data Governance is the focus of the first Discussion Paper, which aims to look at the overlaps of digital identity surveillance technology and regulator led (regulatory) data governance. This will present the overall architecture and the contribution of certain standards used in the credential, as well as how digital identity specifications and protocols can be deployed to implement decentralized data governance.
baseline is the international ISO/IEC 29100 security and privacy techniques framework, this is mapped to Legal jurisdiction notice schema and the differences and risks (in terms of rights and the performance of data controls) is provided as a component of the notice of control.
Using the Credential
The use of an international standards framework for providing standarized notice semantics is critical to harmonize or highlight different security, privacy and identity management governance requirements. Standardized semantics, usable for any data governance is also critical for human interoperability/usability across domains which is the key driver of this work and effort at ToiP .
