Internet2 Intellectual Property Framework

Welcome and Introductions

Thanks to those CACTI members who sent a 100-200 word bio to the CACTI email list
. Tom Barton is interim chair, just until CACTI elects a chair

. Part of rejuvenation of trust and identity advisory structure is a new chair
. See more below on the process.

CACTI Charter - Kevin

  • Key elements of CACTI charter
    • Provide strategic architectural input

    • Create and manage community working groups 

    • Manage and evolve community standards for Internet2 T&I

    • Foster relationships nationally and internationally
    • Broadly share information of relevance

      Additional thoughts:
      • International representation will be helpful in coordinating globally

      • Multi directional communications will be important in this diverse and active landscape; listening, informing
Important to be open and transparent in materials we create and in process
. Transparency

 is an important principle of CACTI
      • Educating and increasing awareness is key to create bigger army of people who are identity aware

• Why are we here? Just to keep in mind… too early to answer

      • What are some of the problems or tasks you think we should address in our first year? 

      • What are some of the ways we'll know that our first year has been successful?

Learning Curve

  • There may be a steep learning curve for CACTI members 

    • Kevin, Ann West and Tom Barton are happy to have additional conversations one-on-one to answer questions and do additional orientation for CACTI members. Don’t hesitate to reach out

    • It’s an advantage to understand how people new to Internet2 Trust and Identity need much explanation of terms

What Internet2 Trust and Identity is doing - scope

Other major activities in Internet2

  • Network Services
    • The Network Services team has been organizing community conversations over past 9 months on future of the network

    • Deploying services in Security to help campuses deal w denial of service attacks

  • Internet2 Net+
    • Note that there are some interdependencies between Trust and Identity and NET+

  • Architecture of Software Development

Other groups to know about

There may be areas the R&E sector wants to stay connected with like with OpenID
, Kantara and OASIS but we
 can’t always do this with our own hands
. The hope is to leverage Identerati (external identity experts) to keep the professional network graph connected

  • Period for nominations: today (June 13) until Tuesday, June 20, 2017
  • Kevin will double check with those nominated to be sure they agree

  • We may use Google form for voting. If there are many nominees, could use a run-off process
