There's more on the threats. > This TF should in my opinion just look at two things. > > How can the Sender find the appropriate contact information in an easy > way and without any restrictions? > > How can the Receiver publish his information in an appropriate and > generic way? A third thing is to maintain this information. In order for a Sender to confidently send a report to a Receiver, someone has to collect assessments about their trustworthiness, so that they can reliably understand each other. > One thing about the wiki page.
