Trust Framework and Accreditation Committees Join Forces to become JTFAC
The TFWG and ACSC have joined forces to be more effective in fulfilling their objectives. Present activity is focused on defining the roles or key players in an Id ecosystem and the functions within the system for which they might be responsible, with the intention of then creating some Value Propositions for those roles. Subsequently the JTFAC (Joint Trust Framework and Accreditation & Certification work group - JTFAC@idecosystem.org) will then focus on identifying the essential Trust Framework structural elements andaccreditation and certification measures which might underpin assurance for given functionalities.
It is the intent of the JTFAC to continue to meet jointly until the time, as determined by JTFAC consensus, that their respective agendas represent enough distinction to return to separate meeting formats.

Privacy Committee to Announce New Vice-Chair
Since the last update, we have had a change in the nominations for officers of the Privacy Committee. We have had an open call for nominations since the last meeting in December, and in our first committee meeting of the New Year, we made the following changes to the slate of candidates for the Vice-Chair position:
The results of the election will be announced during the next Privacy Committee Meeting (Jan. 23). The newly elected Vice-Chair will officially assume the position when we convene in Phoenix.
The committee is working to complete the first draft of the Privacy Evaluation Methodology (PEM). Following the anticipated ratification of PEM v1.0 by the Privacy Committee, the document will be released to the IDESG membership in time for the next Plenary.
The committee is planning a breakout session to discuss the methodology, solicit feedback, and answer any questions.
Financial Committee Update
The Financial Committee is currently working on:
The Financial Committee is willing to work on Risk if no other group is working on it.
NymRights Committee Forming
The NymRights Commitee has created a draft charter, and is in the process of building a community of active members. The Committee will also be focusing on establishing a lexicon of terminology around nyms and nym rights so that we can have a common language to communicate with other IDESG committees on future projects. Our first project is to develop a model "names policy" which, while intended for adoption within NSTIC, can have broader applications for many communities. Work has begun to build our community and document our work at https://www.nymrights.org.

Seeking Images and Pictures of Identity and Ecosystems
Do you have an image explaining some aspect of Identity Management? Do you have a picture of how your piece of the Identity Ecosystem works? We would like you to share it with us at the Holistic Picture Subcommittee of the Management Council. They can be current, historical or futuristic. We are interested in all of them. The goal is to collect a whole range of images that help communicate in ways that go beyond prose, technical descriptions and contracts.
Please send images to the head of the Subcommittee Kaliya "Identity Woman" Hamlin -Kaliya@identitywoman.net.
