      • Marina to put out a call for additional authors to contribute to 3.2.2, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4 and 4.5, 5.2, 5.3. Perhaps practitioners that already works on these topics.
      • Partha to add the overview content of the section 3. Dive deep into each item in the life cycle.
      • Iain ( @Iain Beveridge) to please update the diagram with the Key Mgmt lifecycle according to the terminology and the phases we are using in this paper. (Under section 3.1, page 22)

      • Vani ( @Vani Murthy) to write section 4.1 Compliance and Regulatory Requirements.
      • Partha, Sunil and Santosh will include some content for a new section called 'On-prem Considerations' which is to cover the cloud and on-prem instantiations. It has a placeholder as section 7 for now at the end of the document.

      • Thanos ( @Thanos Vrachnos) and Santosh ( @Santosh Bompally) to review section 1 written by Sam.
      • Sam ( @Sam Pfanstiel) to provide feedback to Thanos questionnaire on identifying additional drivers for HSM-as-a-Service.
      • Thanos ( @Thanos Vrachnos) to include a new question as the first one of the survey asking the respondent: 'Are you familiar with the 'HSM-as-a-Service' term?' After that the rest of the survey, with its term and purpose description can follow.
      • Thanos ( @Thanos Vrachnos) include a short term (HSM-as-a-Service) and purpose description on the top of his survey on HSM drivers.
      • Marina to check the previous Cloud Key Mgmt papers  in order to recognize any references to HSM from the CSP/on-prem perspective and perhaps include the non-CSP perspective (on-prem) in this paper. (Check footnotes for Utimaco, Entryst mentions, etc.)
