Approve submitting SAM Threshold Sharing Schemes v1.0 CS03 as a candidate for OASIS Standard

Do you approve submitting SAM Threshold Sharing Schemes v1.0 CS03 to the OASIS membership for consideration as a candidate for OASIS Standard

SAM Threshold Sharing Schemes v1.0 CS03 [1] was approved as a Committee Specification on 14 October 2021. The TC has received 3 Statements of Use from Cryptsoft, Fornetix, and NetApp [2]. Do you now approve submitting this Committee Specification to the OASIS membership for consideration as a candidate for OASIS Standard?

Approving this ballot will result in a 60-day public review after which, if no comments are received, the CSs will be submitted to a membership-wide call for consent. If comments are received, the TC will be asked to vote by Special Majority Ballot on whether to continue to the membership vote. This is explained in TC Process section 3.4.2, Public Review of a Candidate OASIS Standard [3].

This ballot requires a Special Majority Vote [4]. The TC roster currently lists 7 voting members. In order to pass, at least 5 (2/3 x 7) have to vote Yes and no more than 1 (1/4 x 7) member may vote No.
