Read the full charter.

The core purpose of the CloudIDSec WG is to identify the overlap between the field of Cloud Computing and the Kantara federated identity programs, with a view to defining:

  • How Cloud Computing can be leveraged to implement Kantara specifications (e.g. Identity Assurance Framework components) – This will define specifications for 'IDaaS' – Identity as a Service. What configurations of software can Cloud Service Providers implement; How can they be audited to verify compliance, etc.,
  • How Kantara can help advance Cloud Security best practices - Define how Kantara Assurance and Interop Programs can be applied to enhance security of Cloud environments, particularly in line with achieving compliance with Government standards and linked to Government Privacy Audit policies.
