Subject: Re: [tax] Issues for v2.0 of position paper


Obviously I think of security as important, but that does not necessarily mean that we have to discuss this issue in this group. If we agree that security is not important, or agree that security is not part of the objectives of this group or security is to difficult or ambitious to agree on (my rough translation of your comments) I have certainly no problem not discussing this topic.

But it sounds like you had some interesting experiences in this field.

I'm afraid I disagree about security.  My own experience of government
projects is that there is a huge gap between the original specs which
demand absolute security and the actual implementations which tend to be
much closer to conventional communications (i.e. very little security at
all).  In the UK, at least, there is no movement towards a consensus.

My worry is that if Tax XML starts worrying about security issues we will
never reach agreement and it will significantly reduce the chances of
success for the project.

Just my two penn'orth.
