The group will focus on producing white papers, best practice documents, and an on-going report in to the various activities in the attribute management space.
Specifically, the Work Group will create a set of best practice documents around:
- The handling of attributes by Identity Providers, Relying Parties, and Service Providers
- The definition and proposed use for contexts
- The definition, best use, requirements and criteria of an Attribute Broker
The Work Group will also continue the work started by he Attribute Management Discussion Group to keep the Repository of links to know work in the attribute space up to date, making sure that relevant work from other Kantara Work Groups as well as outside organizations and governments are collected and shared.
The Work Group will explore the concept of an Attribute Broker, defining what an Attribute Broker is, the characteristics of a good attribute broker, and how the use of an Attribute Broker enhances privacy. This will turn in to a set of use cases, a white paper, and eventually a Best Practices document.
