other means.
1. Describe the overarching goal and
value proposition of Information
Sharing and Analysis Organizations
(ISAOs) for your organization.
2. Identify and describe any
information protection policies that
should be implemented by ISAOs to
ensure that they maintain the trust of
participating organizations.
3. Describe any capabilities that
should be demonstrated by ISAOs,
including capabilities related to
receiving, analyzing, storing, and
sharing information.
4. Describe any potential attributes of
ISAOs that will constrain their
capability to best serve the information
sharing requirements of member
5. Identify and comment on proven
methods and models that can be
emulated to assist in promoting
formation of ISAOs and how the ISAO
‘‘standards’’ body called for by E.O.
13691 can leverage such methods and
models in developing its guidance.
6. How can the U.S. government best
foster and encourage the organic
development of ISAOs, and what should
the U.S. government avoid when
interacting with or supporting ISAOs?
7. Identify potential conflicts with
existing laws, authorities that may
inhibit organizations from participating
in ISAOS and describe potential
remedies to these conflicts.
8. Please identify other potential
challenges and issues that you believe
may affect the development and

Hi Peter,

Do you have a pointer to the RFP/RFCs?

There is a real global need here, and it is
quite immediate without any good existing
alternatives.  Already in some venues like
ITU-T, other some national administrations
are pushing for that body to provide a similar
function.  Registry functions are inherently
in scope for the supporting standards body
secretariat, e.g., IANA for IETF among many

    I am not in favor of an ISAO registry as part of this effort and see that as out of scope.  

    I say that from an ISAC and SCC perspective as I have watched Administrations change this and look to go around current efforts that they encouraged (PDD-63, HSPD-7, PPD-21).  

    Further there is an RFP and an RFC out on these issues and they pint to other processes/efforts.
