Subject: OpenC2 Happenings for week of 9 December 2019

ITEM ONE:ÂMeeting Schedule Adjustments. A reminder that the Language and Actuator Profile SCs have changed their regular meeting schedules. If you haven't been participating in either of these SCs due to schedule conflicts, please consider whether the new schedule provides you the opportunity to engage with either or both SCs.

Language SCÂmeetings will now be theÂfirstÂMondayÂof the month at 1:00 PM Eastern time. This is a shift from Tuesday to Monday. NOTE: the December meeting will take placeÂthis weekÂon the second Monday (December 9th) due to the chair's travel schedule. First Monday meetings will begin January 6th.

Actuator Profile SCÂmeetings will now be theÂsecond and fourthÂTuesdaysÂof the month at 1:00 PM Eastern time. This is a shift from Wednesday to Tuesday. That change was effective with the 26 November AP-SC meeting.

These changes are now properly reflectedÂin the OASIS and Lucid Meetings calendars. If you need an invitation for any meetings please let the Secretary or appropriate co-chairs know.

ITEM TWO:ÂPlug FestÂUpdate. OpenC2Âwill be runningÂa plug fest / hackathonÂ27-28 January 2020,Âhosted by US Cyber Command in their public, unclassified DreamPort facilityÂin Columbia, MD. TC members are encouraged to consider participation in this event.ÂÂFurther details and registration information can be found at DreamPort:Âhttps://dreamport.tech/event-open-c2-plug-fest-01272820.php

Information related to the plug fest is being accumulated into pages in the TC's use cases repo; please look atÂhttps://github.com/oasis-tcs/openc2-usecases/tree/master/Cybercom-PlugfestÂand make contributions and corrections to improve the overall value of this resource.

A Tech Talk was conducted at DreamPort onÂTuesday,Â5 November, providing information about OpenC2 and our plans for the plug fest to about 35 people. Slides from the event have been posted; links to the presentations are on the GH page above (in section 6)
OASIS has created a new mail list for the plug fest which is open to interested parties regardless of OASIS or TC membership. If you are interested in participating on that mailing list, please let the Secretary know your preferred email to use.Â

A Slack channel has also been established to help with plug fest coordination: # plug-fest-prepÂ
https://openc2-community.slack.com/messages/CNW18R2NR, however since that channel is limited to plug fest participants who are also TC members, the mail list is the preferred coordination mechanism.

A series ofÂplug fest preparation meetingsÂhave been scheduled in Lucid Meetings. These calls will take place at 1:00 PM EST, with tentative focus as follows:
  • 19 December: Âreview of available producer / consumer capability
  • 2 January: discussion of use cases of interest
  • 16 January: Âhybrid / freeform discussion
This sequence hopefully facilitates the intent of demonstrating interoperability at the plug fest, since by focusing first on working (or nearly) capabilities, those with needs can hopefully get a clearer picture of what's potentially applicable to their use cases.ÂÂIf you wish to participate and need an invitation please contact the Secretary or any of the TC or SC co-chairs.

Six Key Points:
1) The goal of the Plug Fest is to execute use cases using OpenC2 and gather lessons learned about interoperability.Â
2) The Plug Fest is not a venue for the development of OpenC2 specifications.
3) The Plug Fest is open to interested participants, regardless of whether they are OASIS members.
4) The Plug Fest is open to all. The DreamPort facility and the Plug Fest are unclassified, and there is no restriction to U.S. organizations or individuals.

5) The plugfest aspect is for testing interworking of existing OpenC2 implementations. Let us know what you have and we will work your implementation into the test plans.

6) The hackathon aspect is for improving the interworking of existing OpenC2 implementations, extending existing implementations (e.g., the many OpenC2 open source projects), and/or creating new implementations of OpenC2.

ITEM THREE: Google Cloud Platform. A Google representative is working to provide Google Cloud Platform (GCP) resources to support the Plug Fest. A session to introduce people to the basics of using GCP was held on 5 December at DreamPort. Details on how to take advantage of the GCP resources will be forwarded to plugÂfest participants as they become available.

ITEM FOUR: Language SC Co-chair. To-date no nominations have been received for the positionÂof Language SC co-chair.ÂPlease contact either of the TC co-chairs to nominate a candidate or discuss your interest in the co-chair position

ITEM FIVE:ÂÂA call for post 1.0 Participation.ÂVersion 1.0 of the specifications have been posted, approved and announced, so let's move forward.
  • Do you have a product or service that's a candidate for producing / consuming OpenC2 commands and responses? Please consider sharing your Custom Actuator Profile or Proposed Committee specification. ÂPlease contact the AP-SC co-chairs (Alex Everett and Dave Kemp). Â
  • HTTPS is ubiquitous, but is there a message fabric that is more suitable for your cyber-ecosystem? Please consider sharing your proposed key management, transport solutions and other implementation considerations with the IC-SC co-chairs (Dave Lemire and Michelle Barry)
  • Do you need OpenC2 to do more? Do you have a use case or scenario that we have not considered? Please share you use cases with the L-SC co-chairs (Toby Considine [and a player-to-be-named-later])

Meetings This Week:

Monday, 9 December at 1:00 PM EST.

Tuesday, 10 December at 1:00 PM EST.

Also, the monthly TC meeting will be next week, on Wednesday 18 December. Please let the TC co-chairs or the Secretary know if you have any agenda items.
