Subject: NTIA announces first meeting on Vulnerability Disclosure
Resent-From: <kent.b.landfield@intel.com>

NTIA will convene the first meeting of a multistakeholder process concerning collaboration between security researchers and software and system developers and owners to address security vulnerability disclosure on September 29, 2015, at the University of California, Berkeley.


The goal of this process will be to develop a broad, shared understanding of the overlapping interests between security researchers and the vendors and owners of products discovered to be vulnerable, and to establish a consensus about voluntary principles to promote better collaboration.  The question of how vulnerabilities can and should be disclosed will be a critical part of the discussion, as will how vendors receive and respond to this information. However, disclosure is only one aspect of successful collaboration. 


The objectives of this first meeting are to: 1) briefly share different perspectives on how vulnerability information is shared, received, and resolved; 2) briefly review perceived challenges in successful collaborations; 3) engage stakeholders in a discussion of high-priority substantive issues stakeholders believe should be addressed; 4) engage stakeholders in a discussion of logistical issues, including internal structures such as a small drafting committee or various working groups, and the location and frequency of future meetings; and 5) identify concrete goals and stakeholder work following the first meeting.
