1.       Legal Review and other topics deferred to the IIW in-person board meeting
Don and Tom are preparing a legal review summary for the in-person board meeting at IIW - prompted in part, by legal reviews by potential members such as Oracle and MIT.  Another topic we are deferring to the IIW board meeting is a status update on the certification program.  We continue to get a continuing stream of certification requests for new implementations, such as by NEC, who contacted us to certify unprompted.  NEC's is a paid certification, as are others now coming in.

2.       Upcoming Workshop before IIW
We expect about 80 people to join us at the workshop on Monday prior to IIW on Monday, April 25th.  There, we will propose convening a Financial API working group to be chaired by Nat Sakimura of NRI as well as potentially other new members from the financial sector.

3.       Video on OpenID Connect
A video on OpenID Connect will be produced during IIW, using directed funding from Google.  Adam Dawes and the Google identity team are funding a 3-minute short film on the importance of OpenID Connect in the identity space.  Tom Smedinghoff has done due diligence ensuring that the film will be freely available to all.

4.       Website Updates
Mike and Don continue working with our contractor Darin Richardson and the Oregon State University Open Source Laboratory (OSUOSL) on updating the administrative backend tools of our membership site.

5.       Website Privacy Policy
Adam asked about updates to our Website privacy policy. Our privacy policy refers to the US/EU Safe Harbor program, which has been deemed unenforceable.  Tom suggests that as a short-term measure, we delete the reference to the Safe Harbor program.  We then need work on a revised privacy policy.  Tom believes we will be able to rely on a consent approach.  Nat pointed out that we are already collecting all the personal data based on consent.

6.       Liaison Update
Nat created, Mike edited, and Tony edited and submitted a liaison statement to ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27/WG 5 - the working group on identity and privacy.  Tony presented this statement this week.  We will be receiving a liaison response covering new work, including consent and unlinkable authentication.

The OIDF Enhanced Authentication Profile (EAP) work will be discussed by FIDO at their next meeting.  This and RISC will also be discussed at the upcoming Cloud Identity Summit (CIS).  This work will also be presented at the upcoming European Identity and Cloud Conference (EIC).

7.       Proposed Financial API Working Group Update
Nat plans to send a proposed charter to the specifications council in the next few days so that it will be ready in time for EIC.  Intuit is a proposer of the working group.

8.       Report on OpenID Workshop in Santiago
John reports that the OpenID Workshop in Santiago was a great success.  There will shortly be videos of the presentations available.

9.       Report on OpenID Workshop in Amsterdam
Don reports that the workshop in Amsterdam was also a success - focused primarily on OpenID Connect.  Don will be sending a report on the workshop shortly.
