Tony I do not believe that WS-Policy addresses the same issues as the authentication context. For example, authentication context can say how you've authenticated (or want to) in terms of quality of registration and so on. Sure, this can be considered "policy" in the abstract, but from my understanding of WS-Policy, this is not addressed specifically by the WS-Policy drafts. WS-Policy looks like interesting work, and perhaps there is potential for WS-Policy to leverage the authentication context work. If and when WS-Policy is brought to an open standards organization, perhaps that forum would be appropriate for discussing such combinations. Do you agree? regards, Frederick Frederick Hirsch Nokia Mobile Phones > -----Original Message----- > From: ext Anthony Nadalin [mailto:email@example.com] > Sent: Wednesday, October 15, 2003 4:03 PM > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: RE: [security-services] Groups - authentication-context.pdf > uploaded > > > > > > > > >This enables SP to make the right business decision and execute the > transaction properly. > > This is a prime example of policy (WS-Policy), not > authentication context > as it goes beyond authentication > > Anthony Nadalin > > > > To unsubscribe from this mailing list (and be removed from > the roster of the OASIS TC), go to > http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/security-services /members/leave_workgroup.php.
