The afternoon was spent reviewing the Accreditation Policy. The change-barred version from the meetings is available to OTTF members only and can be found on the OTTF members’ collaborative working site.
The O-TTPS is an open standard containing organizational guidelines, requirements, and recommendations for integrators, providers, and component suppliers to enhance the security of the global supply chain and the integrity of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products. This standard, if properly adhered to, will help assure against tainted and counterfeit products throughout the COTS ICT product lifecycle encompassing the following phases: design, sourcing, build, fulfillment, distribution, sustainment, and disposal.
The OTTF has made significant progress on the Open Trusted Technology Provider Standard – Mitigating Tainted and Counterfeit Products (O-TTPS) and on the O-TTPS Accreditation Program.
The O-TTPS (Standard) V1.0 is scheduled to be approved and published in early April 2013. The O-TTPS Accreditation Program (Policy and Accreditation Requirements) are scheduled to be submitted to The Open Group Company Review for approval in Q2 2013. The objective is to have a public launch of the Program in Q4 2013.

The O-TTPS Framework Work Stream will review and finalize the Accreditation Policy over the next few months. There is a planned pilot program to provide some feedback for the Accreditation Program, including the policy, prior to submitting the Accreditation Policy and the Accreditation Requirements documents to Company Review. Company Review of these documents is planned for Q2 2013.
