Subject: RE: [kmip] SNIA standards document would like to reference KMIP draft

Hi Larry -

Certainly glad to have KMIP information included in the SNIA TWG report.
The link you include below is indeed the best one for KMIP info.

As the documents and email archive are publicly visible, I don't think
we have any additional non-public information that the SNIA folks might
need. It's probably a good idea if at least Tony and I can review the
SNIA TWG report before it's made public, if that's possible?

Subject: [kmip] SNIA standards document would like to reference KMIP


   The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) has an activity
within its Security Technical Work Group (TWG) that actively tracks
standards and specifications that are potentially relevant to storage
security. Approximately three times a year, the Security TWG produces an
internal report for the SNIA membership, which provides a list of the
identified documents as well as the state of drafts under development.
In the case of drafts, the Security TWG is careful to not disclose
privileged information about activities that have not been disclosed to
the public (e.g., early drafts being developed by the Trusted Computing
Group). KMIP is clearly an activity of interest, so guidance is being
requested from the KMIP TC on the level of detail that can/should be
disclosed in the SNIA internal report. Clearly, any public information
will be leveraged, but if the KMIP TC permits additional info to be
included it may be possible to identify the latest drafts as well as
identifying other relevant documents (like compliance documents).

   As the SNIA Security TWG liaison, I was asked to query the KMIP TC,
on what version of KMIP draft specification is the best to reference.
Basicly I would like to know if there is any information that is not
public, that the OASIS TC would want/allow the SNIA Security TWG to use
to track OASIS activities.  I'm assuming right now that there will be
regular updates made publicly available to the KMIP draft and other
deliverable docs. If that is the case, is this link the best location
for an outside group, like SNIA, to track OASIS KMIP draft activities? 


   If one of the chairs or staff could respond, that would be great.
