  • Other CDRP topics:

    • IdPs susceptible to ROBOT attack

    • IdPs still running shib v2 or other end-of-life federating technologies

Baseline Expectations Next Steps

  • Good progress in entities meeting Baseline Expectations

    • All entities: 3951 of 4535 meet the metadata expectation (87%)
      IdPs: 492 of 527 meet the metadata expectation (93%)
      SPs: 3459 of 4008 meet the metadata expectation (86%)
      Orgs: 676 of 756 meet the metadata expectation for all entities (89%)

  • No new requests for extensions

  • Most R1s have met baseline,  except two of them

  • Need to decide action plan for orgs that have not met BE nor requested an extension

  •  There are about 30 priority 5 organizations not meeting Baseline.

    • Sooner or later we must contact them as part of dispute resolution

    • How do we get the best contact for the outreach to the priority 5s?


      • This lacks info on what’s happening for those not meeting BE

      • Create the docket intentionally

      • Suggestion to retain the history

      • To add an org to the docket, there should be a CTAB vote and a record of that vote

      • Need 30 or 40 more orgs to meet baseline to achieve   95% meeting Baseline

      • Docket should be under the Baseline website or wiki

        • Private docket makes sense as a wiki page, private to CTAB

        • Public docket is a table in a wiki page, listing the current state

      • Name entity IDs on private document only

      • Separate IDPs from SPs

      • [AI] Albert create a strawman for the public docket  

Next CTAB Call: Wed. Jan 9 at 4pm ET
