Subject: Credential Types appear to be underspecified
Currently, a KMIP Server SHALL support the Credential structure (as placed into a message header), but there is no information (that I could find) about how to handle said Credential.
The Credential Type enumeration lists the following four items:
If we make support of the Credential structure mandatory, I highly recommend that the exact format of the Byte String be specified for each Credential Type. Otherwise, I don't see how to test this requirement to support the Credential structure. As a bare minimum, we should define the binary structure of the Username & Password item, since it seems to be the lowest common denominator.
This is an elaboration of comment Sun-02, which requests a reference given for all items listed in section 9.1.3.
