Hi all,

I'm forwarding a message about NSTIC activities.   The September workshop has been postponed until March, but there will be an NSTIC day at the Internet Identity Workshop in October.  That's great, I love the IIW, it's a great venue for discussing technical issues in depth.  I hope I'll see some of you there.

Since things are moving more slowly we've decided to postpone the revision of the Pomcor architecture white paper to be able to do a more thorough job.

>NSTIC Update: Future NSTIC workshops  
>Dear NSTIC  stakeholders,
>We’ve had a busy summer  of NSTIC activity, in large part thanks to your participation.
>	* In June, we held two workshops: one in  Washington, DC,  focused on governance, and a second in Cambridge, MA,  exploring the privacy issues associated with implementation of the NSTIC.
>	* On July 22, we received more than 50  responses to the NSTIC Notice of Inquiry (NOI) which sought input from the  public on governance. We are analyzing these responses with an eye on  establishing the formal NSTIC steering group in partnership with the private  sector by the end of 2011.
>Heading into the fall,  we are pleased to share some additional information on future workshops.  Previously, we had contemplated hosting a third workshop focused on technologies  and standards relevant to NSTIC in Silicon  Valley in September. We’ve considered a number of options for the  workshop – and have opted to forgo a formal NIST workshop this fall in favor of  playing an active role at the upcoming Internet Identity Workshop  (IIW) October 18-20 at the Computer  History Museum in Mountain View, CA.
>For those of you who are  not familiar with IIW, it’s a long-running event in the identity space that is  unique in its ability to bring together a wide variety of identity ecosystem  players – including advocates, startup firms, governments, academics and Fortune  500 companies – to work on solutions to multiple interoperating projects,  standards, and networks for identity, data sharing and reputation. Given the government’s  commitment to keeping the private sector in the lead on NSTIC, and IIW’s focus  on user-centric identity, we are excited about the opportunity to leverage this  event for the next round of NSTIC discussions.
>Of note, IIW uses a  format where the agenda is created live at the event each morning. That said,  attendees can propose agenda topics in advance of the event on the IIW wiki, so others can  preview the list as the workshop approaches and contemplate which topics might  be of greatest interest.
>IIW has designated the  second day of the event – October 19 – as “NSTIC Day” and our office intends to  propose a handful of NSTIC-related topics for that day in advance of the event.  Note that NSTIC discussions will not be limited to the 19th, and we  expect NSTIC to be a topic of discussion throughout the workshop; the  19th is simply where our efforts will be focused.
>More details are  available at http://www.internetidentityworkshop.com.  The registration site is http://iiw13.eventbrite.comand lists attendees registered so  far.
>NIST will hold a more  formal, government-sponsored event focused on NSTIC technologies and standards  with the Identity and Trust on the Internet  (IDtrust) Symposium, on March 13-14, 2012 at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD.
>We appreciate your  continued interest in NSTIC and efforts to advance it – and look forward to  working with you over the coming months!
