Subject: RE: [pki-tc] RE: PKI Education SC status report

Hi John,

Thank you very much for your responses.
In the Education SC conference call last week, we reviewed your comments.
We see your perspective in providing as many links as possible for information on PKI.

However, upon further discussion, all of the PKI Education SC members disagreed with 
this view.  There are plenty of PKI link farms out there.  For us to maintain another one 
would not help people to overcome obstacles in deploying and using PKI. 

We have heard clearly in our survey responses and from our business relationships that
people want focused information.  They want pointers to the information they need: PKI basics,
business issues (benefits, ROI, etc.), standards, and other key resources.  From our analysis, we 
have identified the missing pieces in the PKI resource page like ROI information and "how-to" documents 
(cookbooks, best practices, etc.).  

We believe that by providing the pointers to existing documents and developing 'missing documents' in
the PKI resource page would benefit people and provide the greatest value to them when
they are researching info regarding PKI. 

thanks june

I am fully in support of updating and expanding our PKI related
information.  In fact, our ability to provide strong resources for all
aspects of PKI is a strength of our focus as a member section and the
TC's efforts. 

As I suggested on our conference call, I do not agree with the proposal
that we eliminate extensive links ("link farm") and instead link to
other "link farm" resources. As I understand this proposal, we would
reduce the number of categories to those proposed in the attachment, and
turn to other external Web sites for their links, and rely on their
approach to organizing the information.  I think this would be
counter-productive to our educational and research goals, and our value
as a major resource. Viewing our Web links and information as the "first
stop" only and maintaining a relatively static page may be necessary at
some point, but given our current budget situation, I believe we can
afford a more comprehensive approach.

In fact, I believe it is to our benefit to think even more expansively
about organizing our resources page than in the current PKI Forum
resources page, and have annotated categories for PKI from legal,
business process, security, Web Services, return on investment, vendor
resources, case studies, technical interoperability, policy
interoperability, hardware (including PKI on mobile devices, smart
cards, etc.), and other more granular categories.  I believe this would
enhance the value of our Web page resources, and reflect our
perspectives.  For example, a set of categories could be associated with
our subcommittees - costs, testing, etc.  This approach would reflect
our needs and interests and organized the way we believe is best, not
that of another Web site.

It would take time and regular review to produce this kind of resource,
but I believe it would be an excellent investment for the contractor we
discussed hiring for this and other purposes.   If at some point we were
unable to manage the maintenance of the site, then we could scale back
to a more modest approach as recommended.

Hi Everyone,
It's been a week since we had the TC conference call.
I haven't receive any comments regarding our proposal for the
modification of the PKI resource page.
As I mentioned in the TC con call, this page is very important, it
includes a lot of information right now, do we want to streamline that?
What type of changes do you think it's valuable?
The Education SC is having a conference call in two weeks.  If you can
get back to us by Oct 4/04, we can discuss our strategy.
Thank you very much for your assistance.  (see attached proposal) june
