Liaison Reports

Steven reported on the PAR extension submitted last week to NESCom.

Jarek reported no activity from P1076 related to IP and encryption.

Inter-operability

Dave G summarized his concerns about key length, and Jarek noted that the relevant text from clause 5 was inside of a revision management block.

Jarek agreed to work w/ Ray to include a recommendation on avoiding known weaknesses associated with choosing a public exponent for RSA.

License Management

Dave G and John discussed the review comments regarding inline representation of the licence proxy key. Dave G clarified that the intent was to constrain only the decryption envelope to an inline representation, and that the encryption envelope was expected to retain full flexibility in identifying a key.

Dave G and John also discussed the status inquiry for license checking. John noted that return string processing might need syntax support, but that further clarification is needed.

Dave G agreed to revise the clause to clarify the expectations for inline keys.

Key Management

Steven continues to work on the updated clause.

Rights Management

No current activity, review comments are welcome.

Common Rights and Visibility

John continues work on the updated clauses.

Work Plan

Liaison Review Comments

High-level objectives:

  • Complete all approval activity in 2013 before PAR expires (2013)
  • Secure pre-ballot feedback from other DASC working groups

Project Plan:

  • Distribute D3 draft for liaison review in mid-February
    • Revised content for D3 must be submitted to Joe by 11-Feb-2013 [COMPLETED]
    • D3 to be distributed to liaison groups by 20-Feb-2013 [COMPLETED]
    • Any material that is still unstable should be tagged with an inline note to the liaison reviewers [COMPLETED]
    • Noted material should be revised for mid-review update as D3a by 25-Feb-2013 (delivery to Joe) [COMPLETED]
    • Any updated D3a clauses will be supplied to liaison reviewers by 01-Mar-2013 [COMPLETED]
    • Liaison review period to close by 12-Apr-2013

  • Incorporate review comments into D4 draft for working group review
    • (Needs timeline review by Technical Editor)
    • Changes for D4 must be submitted by 09-Sep-2013 (delivery to Joe)
    • Working group review closes 30-Sep-2013 with a decision to approve D4 as the MEC review draft or revise further as D5.
    • MEC review requires 30 days and must be completed prior to ballot, initial target is 01-Oct-2013

  • Balloting and review (Needs review by Technical Editor)
    • (Needs timeline review by Technical Editor)
    • Review comments (MEC and WG) need to be processed and relevant changes provided to Joe by 11-Nov-2013.
    • If D5 is approved as ballot draft by 25-Nov-2013, the ballot period starts 01-Dec-2013, we should be able to make the December REVCOM agenda
    • Ballot group formation to close before 30-Oct-2013 in preparation for possible D5 ballot.
    • Assumptions:
      • PAR extension will be approved
      • Need approval of D5 as ballot draft by 25-Nov-2013
      • 30-day ballot period requires a minimum of 45 days from working group approval of ballot draft
      • 10-day recirc period requires a minimum of 15 days from ballot comment disposition
      • Ballot comment dispositioning and incorporating draft updates accepted by the working group will add to the timeline
      • Current technical editing statement of work (contract and budget) will still be valid if D5 is completed and approved for ballot.
      • Additional unbudgeted editing work in 2014 would likely required an additional assessment of $2000 per entity.
