Background

2.1

  • ITU’s Constitution/Convention asks that ITU-T cooperate “with other world and regional intergovernmental organizations, and those non-governmental organizations concerned with telecommunications".
  • ITU-T has a wealth of instruments in place to collaborate with others
slide10

ITU-T Rec. A.4: Communication process between ITU-T and Forums and Consortia

2.2

  • Goal: to facilitate documentation exchange
  • Criteria: pretty straightforward and common sense
    • Evident ones: subject area should be of relevance to the work done in ITU-T
    • Documents submitted to ITU-T should not contain proprietary information (no restriction for distribution)
    • Forum membership should not preclude ITU MS or SM
    • Patent policy: must be consistent with ITU-T patent policy
  • A formal communication process can initiated either by the forum or by ITU-T (e.g., Study Group or Director of TSB)
  • Can be initiated at any time
slide11
ITU-T Rec. A.5: Generic procedures for including references to documents of other organizations in ITU-T Recommendations

2.3

  • Rules for referencing standards from other “qualified” organizations (with the exception of ISO and IEC)
  • Apply to those standards used as normative references (integral part of the Recommendations)
  • The normative references from qualified organizations need to be justified (status of approval, rational for the referencing, degree of stability, IPR isues,…)
  • Instead of referencing, it may be decided (by the SG) to incorporate the text of another organization into the text of a Recommendation (in part or in full) with th e permission of the organization
slide12

ITU-T Rec. A.6: Cooperation and exchange of information between ITU-T and national and regional standards development organizations

2.4

  • Similar in spirit to A.4
  • Global Standards Collaboration (GSC): exchange information between participating standards organizations to facilitate collaboration and enhance the process of global telecommunication standardization in the ITU
  • Annual meetings of 9 leading national and regional standards organizations and ITU (ACIF, ARIB, ATIS, CCSA, ETSI, ISACC, TIA, TTA, TTC, ITU)(15 Observers at GSC-11: ANSI, CEPT, CITEL, GSMA, IEEE, IETF, OMA, SCTE,…)
itu t rec a 7 focus groups working methods and procedures
ITU-T Rec. A.7: Focus Groups: Working methods and procedures

2.5

  • Focus Groups are an instrument providing an additional working environment for the quick development of standards in specific areas
  • Focus Groups have freedom to organize and finance themselves. Focus Groups can be created very quickly, are usually short-lived and can choose their own working methods, leadership, financing, and types of deliverables
  • Focus Groups report to a parent Study Group
  • The Focus Group deliverables may be further progressed as ITU-T Recommendations
  • The establishment of a Focus Group can be considered to start work in new areas with joint membership (ITU-T / SDO) participation in the development of specifications
  • The establishment of a Focus Group is an option considered for resolving any technical divergence between ITU-T and OASIS when updating X.1141 (SAML 2.0) and XACML (2.0)

Summary on issues

3.4

  • OASIS is qualified under ITU-T A.4 & A.5
  • ITU-T SG 17 agreed to convert SAML and XACML instead of a simple referencing
  • Editing necessary (multipart standard / 1-Part Rec., normative/informative references)
  • IPR
  • Ongoing maintenance
  • PR

Ongoing maintenance

3.5

  • Maintain the communication channel with OASIS
  • OASIS plans further revisions of SAML and XACML that will be resubmitted to ITU-T
  • Sharing of defect reports and proposals for improvements
  • Appointment of liaison officers
  • Relevant OASIS TCs will continue to collect and respond to change proposals
  • In case of substantial different conclusions about some technical issues, a Focus Group may be established for harmonization and resolution of divergent conclusions
conclusion
Conclusion

4.

  • Well established collaboration between ITU-T and OASIS
    • MoU on E-business (with ISO, IEC and UN/ECE)
    • Joint Workshop on Public Warning, Geneva, 19-20 October 2006 (started during WSIS, Phase II, Tunis, November 2005)
    • OASIS standards accepted as ITU-T Recommendations(13 June 2006): X.1141 (SAML 2.0) and X.1142 (XACML 2.0)
  • Future cooperation areas:
    • OASIS Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) standard to be progressed as an ITU-T Recommendation
      • Accepted as work item at Rapporteur Meeting in September 2006
      • Expect formal work item adoption in December 2006  X.CAP, consent foreseen by September 2007
    • Web Services Security: SOAP Message Security (WSS v1.1)
  • Other cooperation mechanisms could be explored: workshops, Focus Groups, etc
