* Chairmanship: Karl

Marc Chanliau resigns his position.  Eve Maler (Sun) is nominated by Marc 
Chanliau, seconded by Norbert Mikula.  Elected by unanimous consent.

Eve notes that OASIS TCs are run with reference to the OASIS bylaws [1] and 
Robert's Rules of Order [a handy source of which is at [2]].

* Reexamine TC charter/scope

The original TC proposal is at [3].

New statement of purpose, by unanimous consent:

"The purpose of the XML-Based Security Services TC is to define an XML 
framework for exchanging authentication and authorization information."

New list of deliverables and projected dates, by unanimous consent:

"The XML-Based Security Services TC will produce set of one or more 
Committee Specifications that cover use cases and requirements, core 
assertions, protocols, bindings, and a conformance suite, all of the 
aforementioned to be examined with respect to security considerations.  The 
work will take the S2ML specification and the intended submission of 
AuthXML, along with any other relevant and timely submissions, into 
consideration.  The goal (subject to revision) is to publish a 
substantially complete set of Committee Specifications by 1 June 2001, and 
submit a Committee Specification to the OASIS membership for its approval 
by 1 September 2001."

The intent is to allow enough time between 1 June and 1 September for 
implementation against the conformance suite.

* Fill required positions:

Eight subcommittees were agreed on, by unanimous consent.  Leaders 
(effectively combination chair/editors) for the subcommittees have been 
assigned as follows:

Coordinating editor: Bob Blakley, Tivoli
Use Cases and Requirements: Darren Platt, Securant
Core Assertions: Phil Hallam-Baker
Protocols: Tim Moses, Entrust
Bindings: Prateek Mishra, Netegrity
Conformance Suite: Krishna Sankar, Cisco
Security Considerations: Jeremy Epstein, WebMethods

Other positions assigned:

Issues list maintainer: Hal Lockhard, Entegrity
Web page maintainer: Marc Chanliau, Netegrity
Secretary: Heather Hinton, Tivoli

The following efforts would benefit from liaison with our own; there may be 
others later:

- ebXML
- XML Encryption
- XML Protocol

ACTION: If you are interested in serving as an official Security Services 
TC liaison with one or more of these efforts, please announce this fact on 
the mailing list before the next meeting.  (Maryann Hondo was mentioned as 
an ebXML liaison, but we didn't catch the other names mentioned.)  This 
will be determined at the next meeting.

Subcommittees will set their own meeting schedules and be managed 
internally as each leader sees fit; presumably they can get started right 
away.  They will be expected to submit a report at each "plenary" TC 
meeting.  Mailing lists can be created for subcommittees by request to Karl 

ACTION: If you are interested in joining a subcommittee, send mail to its 
leader as soon as possible.

Very likely, the leaders of the subcommittees will meet separately to 
handle coordination issues.  Bob will run these meetings, but Eve will be 
available to help as necessary.

* Meeting schedule

Two possible dates mentioned for the first face-to-face (F2F) meeting are 
25 January and 9 February.

ACTION: Eve to fix the date of the first face-to-face (F2F) meeting after 
collecting availability data through the Evite.com meeting scheduler.

Teleconference calls will be conducted every other Tuesday.  The next 
telecon will be January 23 at 9-11am PST/12 noon-2pm EST/5-7pm GMT.  This 
time slot may change in the future, and the length of the biweekly telecons 
may be reduced to one hour.  Telecons will be hosted by Netegrity.

ACTION: Marc to set up the telecon and send out the phone number information.
