Subject: Re: [kmip] Groups - KMIP Server Conformance Proposal (KMIP ServerConformance Proposal.pdf) uploaded
Actually, I'm thinking the conformance text would be something like this:
An implementation SHALL be a conforming KMIP Server.In other words, everything is a conforming KMIP Server, but may additionally conform to a particular profile or set of profiles.
That said, I would prefer that we leave out profiles entirely from the KMIP specification, but don't see a problem adding a couple profiles in (aside from it pushing out the schedule).
I'm hesitant to put 'requirements' on the profiles themselves, though, because this is a bit like 'meta-work' instead of 'real-work'. However, if we make profiles an integral part of the protocol, with a profile registry and ways for clients to retrieve the profile name, then we'll need to be precise in creating ways for the client to find out exactly which algorithms and commands are supported by the KMIP Server. This will probably be a fair bit of work, although I haven't scoped the effort.
