The Identity Ecosystem Steering Group kickoff meeting – day 2
Yesterday was the second day of the kickoff meeting for the Identity Ecosystem Steering Group. This day featured the election of key leadership positions, including both those for the group overall as well as the many speciallized working groups. Voltage, by virtue of being a security vendor, is in the security working group, and I was a bit surprised to see a total of only 8 votes for the leadership of the security working group.
That means of the hundreds of people at the meeting (both in-person and on-line), only 8 of them were interested enough in security to make that particular vote. I don't know exactly how many people were eligible to vote, but I believe that it was roughly in the range of 400 to 500. I certainly hope that this doesn't reflect how much interest there is in security in this group.
