The working group periodically agrees that it has arrived at consensus on part of its work. The process is as follows:
- The group arrives at tentative consensus on a teleconference
- The WG is notified (through the email list) that we have arrived at tentative consensus on an item and that we will be conducting a final review on the next call -- discussion on the list is encouraged
- The item is reviewed on the next teleconference and, if it survives basically unchanged and is agreed to on the second teleconference, it is posted here
We agreed to a refinement of our charter that clarifies the way that we will decide what is "in scope" for our effort. Click HERE for a link to the email in which Greg Aaron makes the proposal. It has been accepted by the working group as of today's teleconference.
We agreed to use NIST 800-30 methodology as the basic framework to complete our analysis. Here is a very high-level summary of the methodology
We agreed on a set of Guidelines for sub-groups that handle confidential information
We agreed on our Phase 1 Final Report
