Subject: Re: T2 Minor Inconsistency in Section 12.2


Marty:

I am referring to the following sub-section from the Messaging Service spec:

12.2 Collaboration Protocol Agreement

The configuration of Security for MSHs may be specified in the CPA. Three areas of the CPA have security definitions as follows:

The Document Exchange section addresses security to be applied to the payload of the message. The MSH is not responsible for any security specified at this level but may offer these services to the message sender.

The Message section addresses security applied to the entire ebXML Document, which includes the header and the payload.

Arvola,

Unfortunately there are three different "versions" of version 1.0 in
circulation:  The copy approved on May 10, the slightly reformatted copy,
and the more recent reformatted copy.  Apparently the line numbering does
not agree among them.

Please re-post this comment, referring to the section number.

Everyone, if you refer to line numbers, please be sure you are looking at
the original approved version(labelled "normative document" on the ebXML
web site). It would be safest always to include section numbers in your
comments.

Regards,
Marty

Line 1978 talks about three areas of the CPA that  have security
definitions. This is followed by only two bullets.

The first bullet says "The MSH is not  responsible for any security
specified at this level but may offer these  services to the message
sender". This seems contradictory. If the MSH offers  these services, isn't
it responsible for doing the necessary encryption and  decryption? What
does "not responsible for any security specified at this level"  really
mean?

The second bullet refers to a Message section in  the CPA. No such section
can be found in the schema (Appendix D in the CPPA  spec).
