Subject: work on Rec. ITU-T X.ucstix et al.
Hi Rich, Now that this work is approved and underway, it should be a regular part of somebody's agenda and remit in CTI. Indeed, CTI should have an effective, structured and strategic roadmap for proactive outreach and continuing liaison with the multiple other community standards bodies that will be essential to adapting and scaling the CTI platforms. Even within the U.S., adapting the platforms to significant industry sector threat environments like robo/spoofed calls is important. See, e.g., http://www.circleid.com/posts/20170324_use_stix_to_block_robocalls/ Interested parties here - including OASIS - should file in the FCC proceeding, GC Docket 17-59 http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2017/db0323/FCC-17-24A1.pdf Note the comment and reply comment dates. It has not yet been published in the Federal Register. The ITU-T action is in one of several important community standards bodies that includes ETSI, 3GPP, and GSMA in the telecom/ICT universe. The formal liaison material will course its way from the ITU's Telecommunications Standardization Bureau (TSB) support engineer, Ms. Xiaoya Yang, to the OASIS secretariat and into CTI. In the meantime it is useful to understand a little about the process and materials. The ITU-T project document site is at http://www.itu.int/itu-t/workprog/wp_item.aspx?isn=14109 I have attached both the current base text and what is known as the A.5 justification submitted to initiate the work. It is also worth noting that in addition to the Korean editors responsible for the work, Takeshi Takahashi was added as an editor. Takeshi is a well known cyber security information exchange community leader from Japan who also co-chairs the IETF MILE working group and has authored multiple useful structured information exchange specifications. To explain some of the institutional jargon here, the TAP designation means it will go out eventually for Traditional Approval Process balloting among ITU-T nation state members. That is presently planned for Sept. 2019. During the work item drafting period it will be designated X.ucstix and given a X.1500-series number as it moves to approval. The work also resides in what's known as Rapporteur Group Q4/17 (cybersecurity) within Study Group 17 (Security). The Q4/17 rapporteur is one of Japan's respected leaders in this field, Dr. Youki Kadobayashi. The ITU-T is the telecom standardisation body - one of several bodies within the only global intergovernmental organization in this field that has existed since 1850. OASIS needs to be continuously working with the editors here to help ensure that the ICT sector use cases mesh with the work. Getting this material published as an X-series Recommendation will get the CTI platforms evangelized among 193 Member nations and officially translated into four other major languages and made freely available for downloading. The official translations alone are worth the effort! best, tony (ETSI-OASIS liaison)
