Hi all -

Below is a summary of the various polls sent out in the last few weeks. 


- The KI NSTIC Participation Poll: a simple report of responses and any

19 responses to the question " There are four possibilities regarding
Kantara's participation in the NSTIC Steering Group."
* 10 = Kantara should participate as a Participating Member
* 6 = Kantara should participate as a liaison organization
* 3 = Kantara should participate as an Observing Member

Note that no one said Kantara should not participate.

15 responses to the question: " If you are planning to participate in
the NSTIC SG please indicate how:"
* 8 = participate via employer
* 4 = participate via Kantara
* 3 = participate as an individual


Kantara has a lot of thought leadership on how eGov ought to work. It
would make a lot of sense for Kantara to be on the board of IESG.

It was obvious that other consortia and SDOs have positioned themselves
for leadership roles. I think Kantara can, and should, and recuse
themselves from decisions that could cause conflicts of interest.

During the Initial Period Kantara should be actively participating in
order to understand the direction NSTIC is headed. At the time of the
formal voting and start-of-work in 90ish days, Kantara will be able to
make an informed decision on how to move forward. Until then, conflict
of interest situations are unlikely to arise.

Trust in the identity ecosystem will not jell if participants are not
accredited to an agreed upon set of standards. Kantara needs to
participate fully in creating the framework that allows that trust to form.

Kantara itself simply represents the collective input of WG
participants. Those individuals probably have input to NSTIC thru their
primary employer.
