Version 0.9.0

11 Key Decision Log

11. 1 Out of Scope

  1. 1.
    Recommendation to add a comment on general use of UIN across Europe
    1. 1.
      Rational: the BB had many discussions on the use and applicability of UINs. Outcome was that not everyone was convinced that an UIN is the best approach and concerns about privacy and security were raised that were accepted by all participants.
  2. 2.
    General recommendation to visualize how this BB is embedded in the whole GovStack approach.
    1. 1.
      Rational: This is not something that is being done at the level of each BB but for GovStack at large. Please consult the GovStack management for such an overview which was done previously.

11.2 Next Phase

  1. 1.
    Development of internal workflow
  2. 2.
    Definition of internal APIs which will address the question of domain allocation as well.
  3. 3.
    Implement SMART requirements to have easy identification and assessment for BB procurement purposes..

  8. 8.
    Throughout the document, terminology of identity and verification was aligned to be uniform with either identity and verification BB or IDV BB
  9. 9.
    The diagram depicted five APIs and five "internal sub-building blocks/ modules" which were explained. However, the sixth module "UIN Generator" was missing and adjusted now.
  10. 10.
    Typing mistake on page 10 ‘Enrolment Service’ was corrected.

    Section 4.1 ‘Identity and Verification Building Block’ - added more content to the module ‘Federation Services’

  16. 16.
    Use Cases:
    1. 1.
      added the generic use case of ‘Identity Enrolment’. This use case is also covered in the previous section of Functional Requirements since it does not require any other BB to interact with. Nevertheless, the request to complete the use cases in addition to the ‘identity verification’ and ‘cross-border recognition of professional jobs’ made sense and was incorporated.
    2. 2.
      added more context and introduction to use case 2.
  17. 17.
    The section ‘8.2 Building Blocks Requirements’ was renamed to ‘Building Blocks API Requirements’

    “Notification Services API Requirements’ amended with content.
  20. 20.
