Subject: EDXL DE "issue" senderID
The CAP philosophy of messages being sent from “people” to “people” thru application interface forms is not the “machine” to “machine” EDXL philosophy. Sensor devices are not always uniquely associated with a domain and they are for sure not sent by an individual actor. In fact, most are on private “e.g. 10.1.1.1” internet non-routable networks. Because there are so many instantiations of these types of sensor networks we have explored MAC addresses of devices NICs for identifying the unique source of the application device sending the EXDL message. We need to consider expanding the restriction of <senderID> to more than an individual “e-mail address”.
