- CAMP: Delivering, Sourcing, and Securing Services Throughout the Student Identity Life Cycle
Tempe, AZ, Feb 4-6, 2009
Registration is open, the program is online, and almost all of the speakers are lined up. Registrations to date are slightly lower than at this time last year. It is hoped that widening campus travel restrictions will not unduly impede attendance.

- attribute standards development
Date-of-birth, for controlling access by under age users, is one example gaining traction and in need of standardization.
The Danish government first proposed the use case for this, and other governments seem interested as well.
What is the logical forum for this work to proceed? MACE-Dir doesn't seem to be best suited for this, given its higher-ed focus. TF-EMC2 may be the place, or perhaps once REFEDS gets rolling...
If a national government puts forward a well-crafted proposal to start, it would facilitate further activity. More to come on this as it develops.
With the recent end of the Signet project funding, there have been some good discussions on the continuing (for now) Signet calls as well as on the Grouper calls. With the start of the new year, it would seem to be the time to spin up a different forum for this. The MACE members at the CSG meeting this week will take advantage of proximity to discuss this.
- MD5 compromise/exploits
There has been discussion on related lists about the future viability of MD5 in PKI.
- GENI testbed
There was discussion of trust anchors in the context of dynamic network configuration in GENI testbed. as well as for general access control.
[AI] (Ken and Mark) will distribute some information on this topic.
