Berlin 2017: Proceedings - Open Trusted Technology Forum

Open Trusted Technology Forum (OTTF) Members' Meeting

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Objective of Meeting

The morning session was spent attending the plenary.

The afternoon consisted of a joint Forum session with the Platform and Security Forums as an exploratory session only – to see what the other Forums are doing in security-related areas and to vet the concept of further coordination among Forums for addressing security-related issues.


On Tuesday morning the Forum members attended the Plenary, which was focused on Cybersecurity and the Internet of Things and where Sally Long, the OTTF Forum Director, had a one-on-one interview with Steve Nunn, CEO of The Open Group on the topic of cybersecurity. (See the Plenary report.)

Tuesday afternoon was spent planning for and then conducting the joint Forum session. Each of the Forums was asked to identify beforehand, relevant security-related deliverables within their Forums. This identification was to include published deliverables, deliverables under development, planned deliverables, and “wishful thinking” deliverables in order to jump-start the discussion. These were presented in the form of roadmaps and discussion around their current and planned deliverables.

This was followed by a brainstorming session where the participants were asked to identify:

  • The current deliverable areas that they felt would be worthwhile for cooperation/coordination between their Forum and another Forum
  • Cybersecurity areas not yet being worked by any of the Forums, but which the members would find valuable and might be worth exploring further


Objectives, activities, and next steps were captured and are included in notes for further discussion.

Next Steps

This initial work will be captured and taken back to the Forums for further exploratory exercises with the Forum members who were not in Berlin. We will then conduct an exercise in which we ask Forum members to rate which of the current security-related deliverables are most valuable to them and which security-related activities that are not yet being worked in any of the Forums (i.e., gaps) would be most valuable to address.
