Liaison Reports

John reported that P1076 is in the study group phase, and will be soon preparing a PAR.

Joe Daniels reported on pending action at the IEEE SA Board of Governors to consider "unaffiliated experts" attendance rules limiting to 3 meetings per year. We expect to know more in mid-January.


Steven reported on testcases he plans to add to the inter-operability pages on TWiki.

The group discussed the status of the recommendations, the final P1735 document content, and support in industry for use of the described technology.

License Management

Key Management

Rights Management

Parminder reviewed the P1735ControlBlock description he posted last week. Steven asked about the binding of rights to Control Blocks, and noted that hierarchy of control blocks wasn't supported. Jerry asked about the control_digest structure and how that is interpreted. John said he was treating that as a conceptual placeholder rather than a detailed proposal on control_digest.

The working group plans to discuss the implications of the control block model at the next meeting.
