Subject: Security (Re: [soa-rm] Definition of "Service Consumer")


This is getting interesting so Ill just join in

There seem to be good reasons why security or maybe more appropriate 
security related functions could be part of a (abstract) RM. Functions 
such as (add,verify)integrity, (add,verify)confidentiality, 
(add,verify)authentication etc.

If one wants to later relate a RM to economical and legel aspects such 
as those found in service level agreements then such abstract function 
seems relevant.

The rigth to refuce service access may be a function of 
authenticationverification of issuer, sender ,indended receive, addressee.

So Ill think Ken is right that it maybe a good point keeping it on the 
agenda and removed later if deemed to concrete.
