The IMS Security Framework defines the security approaches that should be used when implementing IMS specifications. The security framework, published in May 2019, is already being used in the LTI Advantage, OneRoster, and other IMS specifications. IMS has established a Security Framework Group, composed of experts in security and the EdTech domain from within the IMS Members. This Group is monitoring and reviewing how the Security Framework is used by the various IMS specifications, and provides strategic awareness of the broader concerns within the field of security. They are also creating the first, annual, security audit of how security is addressed within the IMS specifications. During this panel session, the members of the IMS Security Framework Group will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the Security Framework. They will give an overview of the planned revision of the Security Framework.  There will also be an opportunity for attendees to quiz the Group members on how they think security issues in the EdTech domain will develop over the next 12-18 month.
