PING - informal chairs’ summary – 25 June 2015

(Apologies for last-minute delivery of summary.-Tara)

Thanks very much to Lake for acting as scribe.

Regrets: Nick Doty, Karima Boudaoud

Our next call will be on 13 August 2015 at the usual time.

* Privacy considerations for Media Capture Streams [1]
Last call for this document coincided with the previous PING call; PING
members were asked to come to the June call with comments for further
discussion. (Thanks again to Katie Haritos-Shea for providing detailed
comments in the earlier review phase.) A number of comments from this call
and mailing list posts were summarized and forwarded to the Media Capture
Task Force, which are detailed in a post to the public-media-capture
mailing list and copied to the public-privacy mailing list[2]. (Thank you
to Nick Doty for writing up this post.) Comments covered such topics as
identifiers, consent and permissions, as well as more general privacy

* TAG Privacy and Security Questionnaire [3]
PING had agreed to work with the TAG on a draft Privacy and Security
Questionnaire, which had been created by Mike West. Joe Hall and Greg
Norcie provided an extensive set of comments, which they shared with the
mailing list [4]. They primarily looked at extending the privacy side of
the questionnaire, building on earlier work that Nick Doty had done, with
the goal of helping people to think about broader privacy questions. They
requested group input to further extend and refine the questionnaire.
Commentators were quite supportive of having a document that looks
specifically at privacy issues apart from security ones. Simon Rice
suggested it might be helpful to consider the distinction between data
itself and the uses of data, and provided links to the ICO Privacy Impact
Assessment Code of Practice [5,6] as possible sources for fleshing out the
questionnaire. Further work on the questionnaire was proposed for the PING
face-to-face at the IETF meeting in Prague on 23 July 2015.

* Strengthening PING’s influence in W3C
The chairs received member comments expressing a desire for PING to have
stronger impact on W3C work; discussion was held on how to ensure our work
is timely, relevant, and consistent. It was stressed that PING members do a
great deal of difficult volunteer labor for the good of standards
development, for which we are deeply grateful. Going forward, we hope that
through such approaches as joint work with TAG, we can disseminate our work
more widely. We also will continue to work on how to incorporate privacy
reviews into the specification development process.

Reminder: we will be holding a face-to-face meeting at the upcoming TPAC in
Sapporo (October 26-30). More details will be available as the program
