Subject: SBE Viewpoint

EM-TC Members,

After consultation with members of the organization I represent, the Society of Broadcast Engineers, I must report that we have serious concerns with the issues presented this past week regarding CAPv1.2, particularly as it relates to Digital Signature.  It would seem we as the TC need to take a step back and reassess the readiness of CAPv1.2 to progress through the standards process.  Additional testing is perhaps in order to work out these current issues, so that in short order a more implementable protocol can be presented for OASIS Standards approval.  Some have advocated for just approving CAPv1.2 and fixing everything in CAPv2.0.  However, with the OASIS CAP IPAWS Profile based on CAPv1.2, that does not bode well for unhindered implementation of CAPv1.2 for the Emergency Alert System and FEMA’s IPAWS Program.

I just wanted to make SBE’s viewpoint known to my fellow EM-TC members.
