Subject: RE: [ebxml-msg] RE: AS3?....
Yes, agreed that is ebXML transport neutral. I question how viable FTP really is w.r.t. firewall, DMZ/network, and message authentication policies of many companies though for ebXML type of transport option. ---Zahid -----Original Message----- From: Ralph Berwanger [mailto:rberwanger@bTrade.com] Sent: Thursday, February 28, 2002 3:00 PM To: Ahmed, Zahid; Greg Vesper; David Fischer; Jeff Lightcap; email@example.com <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Dave Bennett; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; Bill Morgan Subject: RE: [ebxml-msg] RE: AS3?.... I think that we have managed to attribute a need for ebXML that simply cannot be implied. The ebXML Message Services were defined apart from any transport protocol. It would be wrong to attempt to justify a need for AS? standards based on ebXML. I am not sure there is a valid argument for pursuing an AS2-like solution for FTP. I am sure that anyone who tries to use ebXML as the justification will be embarassed to know that ebXML Message Service Specification will not promote the argument. The specification is very clear, it states: The ebXML architecture requires that the ebXML Message Service protocol be capable of being carried over any available communications protocol. Therefore, this document does not mandate use of a specific communications protocol. I suggest that a different justification be crafted before this discussion goes any further.

Well, if we entertain the idea of support for FTP in future versions of ebXML, we will need to support certainly transport level security of ebXML message over FTP. There are secure FTP impls out there. Reliable message delivery would be another aspect to fact in w.r.t. FTP. Non-repudiation would be another aspect. Ofcourse, the SOAP message enveloping scheme of ebXML may be enhanced to provide some transport independent authenticatioin scheme in the future. ---Zahid -----Original Message----- From: Greg Vesper [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Thursday, February 28, 2002 12:18 PM To: David Fischer; Jeff Lightcap; firstname.lastname@example.org Cc: Dave Bennett Subject: RE: AS3?.... I strongly suggest we take up the issue of demand. Cyclone has been servicing market demand for this capability for several years in production hardened environments and would be happy to argue in favor of FTP as a valid transport for EDIINT. Alternatively, the role of FTP within the ebXML standard could be elevated to achieve the same desired functionality with the advantage of what ebXML brings to the table. Either way, the absence of FTP as a transport for secure B2B messaging is an obvious hole. FTP is a valid transport with an enormous amount of existing infrastructure - it ought to be elevated in the appropriate standards, be it EDIINT, ebXML, or both. I'm happy to actively participate in any initiatives in this regard. Cheers, -Greg.

There is no proposed AS3 standard. On several occasions, vendor's have requested an AS3 standard based upon FTP. Thus far, we have not seen enough end-user demand to proceed with this, but if such demand becomes evident, we could.

Anyone know what is proposed for AS3. Trailblazer Systems is implementing FTP with S/MIME. They also mention AS3 on their web site as a proposed standard: http://www.as400ftp.com/latestnews_detail.cfm?number=2 <http://www.as400ftp.com/latestnews_detail.cfm?number=2> I can't find anything about this proposed standard anywhere except for the mention on the page indicated above.
