Updates (Allan Eustis):
3rd Plenary Meeting: The meeting is scheduled to start 11:30 a.m. EDT,
it will be webcast, with NIST staff in the NIST Employee Lounge and
TGDC members (approx. 12-13) participating via teleconference (Phone
# and Pass code the same as regularly scheduled subcommittee meetings).
We will be using an on line hand raising tool, instructions on how to
use have been emailed. Slides will be sent to members by Friday, June
29th. There will be hard wire network connections in the employees lounge
for NIST use.
- The agenda
has been revised per request from Secretary Gale, STS first, then CRT,
and concluding with HFP.
- The meeting
should conclude with 3 separate votes formally adopting the drafts with
the editing token given to Bill Jeffrey for final changes.
Plenary Presentation (David Flater):
plans one presentation for the meeting, being given by David Flater.
- The presentation
will be short (barring any issues raised), only five slides.
- The idea
of the presentation is to review the CRT Issue Log which is a compilation
of the 280 issues received, primarily from the TGDC members after the
last plenary. The issue log documents to the responses to each issue.
1 is just a cover slide.
2 will discuss the issue log and the statistics.
3 will highlight resolved issues in the log.
shake & bake tests: no longer missing
test method: rewrote explanation
misconstrued terms: replaced with more explanatory wording
engineering practices: fixed nits
test: more parameters for op-scan
requirements clarified through wording changes or defined terms
4 will discuss issues that are pending, these are issues that have been
resolved but did not make it into the VVSG draft that was distributed.
5 will discuss open issues. The first being Ron Rivest's question on
field immunity clarification. [per Alan Goldfine this issue may be closed,
it will be discussed offline] Also a coordination issue with STS on
harmonization with reporting and the definition of token.
the last scheduled meeting before the plenary. The need for future teleconferences
will be decided after the July 3rd plenary.
adjourned at 11:20 a.m.
to the Help America Vote Act of 2002, the TGDC is charged with directing
NIST in performing voting systems research so that the TGDC can fulfill
its role of recommending technical standards for voting equipment to the
EAC. This teleconference discussion served the purposes of the CRT subcommittee
of the TGDC to direct NIST staff and coordinate its voting-related research
relevant to the VVSG 2007. Discussions on this telecon are preliminary,
pre-decisional and do not necessarily reflect the views of NIST or the
