BE 2020: review companion wiki doc / “FAQ”? 
 

  • What else needs to be done to ready materials for BE 2020 community consensus?
  • There is a working draft of an FAQ.  Plan is that it will be published on the InCommon website as a companion to the BE material
  •  There is a chance that once the community examines the proposed BE 2020 statements, for example around error URL,  more clarity will be required.
  • There is  concern regarding this proposed BE statement ( difficult for an organization to be  sure it is in compliance):
    Statement - All SP service endpoints must be secured with current, supported, unbroken transport layer encryption.
  • DavidB has looked into this for U of Alaska. There are not a lot of options in the approaches
    • Eric: Everyone deals with this in their local environment, it’s related to SIRTFI, 
    • hard to tie down to one specific metric, regarding how many versions back. 
    • It’s always nice to have specifics, but if it’s  tough 
  • Suggestion to use OWASP materials / wording to tweak this
  • Each CTAB member should each read thru the  OWASP cheatsheets:
  • https://cheatsheetseries.owasp.org/cheatsheets/Transport_Layer_Protection_Cheat_Sheet.html
  • https://cheatsheetseries.owasp.org/cheatsheets/TLS_Cipher_String_Cheat_Sheet.html
  • Question on how often the OWASP cheat sheet documents are updated. Issue of drifting changes
  • AI Albert email CTAB about reviewing the two OWASP cheatsheets (done)
  • Plan is that Tech Ex will be used for last round of feedback from community  on BE 2020 plan prior to moving into community consensus
  • See the two CTAB Tech Ex 2019 sessions listed below
