Subject: Re: [soa-rm-ra] Thought Experiment on SOA Security and Governance

TS Trust is where we should look for mapping the trust aspects of service
management in the RM to SOA to the RA IMO.  In the case below it would be
authentication via other tokens since only about 5-15% of the population has
the technical skill to acquire and implement such.  Nevertheless, WS-Trust
defines a model for trust management.  You may wish to take a look.  It is
in the OASIS Kavi.


I have also cc'd Marc Goodner of Microsoft who has extensive knowledge of
this specification.  One of our members/observers, Abbie barbir, also works
on this.

I would like to suggest we utilize this model for several reasons.  First -
the model is technically well thought out and is a good match for our needs.
It is also an OASIS managed specification under the WS-SX TC.  It is also
likely that the WS-* stack is the primary implementation technology for
those wishing to implement an architecture written with the SOA RM.
Alignment on all three aspects indicates we need to strongly consider.
