From the Work Group Charter:

The purpose of the proposed work-group is to create a set of requirements and conformance criteria to protect the privacy of individuals holding or using mobile credentials such as mobile Driving Licenses. This includes, but is not restricted to, technology ecosystems based on ISO/IEC 18013-5 compliant mobile driving licenses. Existing standards can provide technical and transactional assurances of user choice and data minimization at the point of presentation of the credential, but do not provide assurances to the holders of mobile credentials that relying parties that may collect their identity attributes will use those attributes solely for the fulfillment of the purposes for which the mobile credential was presented. Failing to respect the consent of mobile credential holder or the legal authority of the verifier to collect the identity attributes could violate the privacy of the mobile credential holder.

We propose a phased approach to writing requirements and conformance criteria for the various endpoints of data flows in a mobile credential ecosystem which we characterize as Issuer, Holder, and Verifier, including the software, hardware, individuals, and entities at the technical endpoints. In ISO/IEC 18013-5 these are the “Issuing Authority” and “Issuing Authority Infrastructure”, the “mDL Holder” and the “mDL” (credential and holding software), and the “mDL Verifier” and “mDL Reader”. The table below presents the proposed phases, with estimates of their durations. Note that we expect that some of the work in the phases will overlap to ensure that expectations are aligned across the ecosystem.
