Subject: unique id in metadata


in response to your question at yesterday's confcall, here is the 
documentation for metadata id as described in EVDL 0.1 draft schema.
To get the full context, please see the current schema draft:


I'll be also posting documentation generated automatically from this schema.


        <xsd:appinfo>The ID element provides a mechanism to declare 
uniquely identifiable attributes for cataloging and referencing.
        The provider, author and vendor IDs allow cross referencing and 
trust models to be developed based on the source of the test case.
        Note: Need to define the XML:DigSig for these attributes and 
provide for a mecahism to sign an entire file (ie provide authenticity 
and integrity of the file outside of transport security).

The ID Element should be derived from the following pieces of information:
    1.  Organization Label / Name - ex: Foundstone, in the case of large 
organization it is their responsibility to
    maintain organization level uniqueness.  ... TODO:  Define legal 
    2.  Current date - YYYY-MM-DD TODO:

    Thus a sample ID is: 2004-03-31-foundstone.com-0001
    The id part after the company name should be unique within the 
company (i.e. last part of id namespace needs to be
    managed by the company.
