Title: RE: [xacml] Minutes of 25 March Policy Model teleconference



I'd like to clarify a couple of things regarding XrML in your minutes.


Regarding access to the XrML specification from www.xrml.org, NO agreement with ContentGuard is required. You all are free and welcome to obtain the XrML specification and related materials. All you have to do is to register with the site, so that the specification package can be emailed to your attention. By the way, ContentGuard is submitting XrML to the Rights Language TC within OASIS. Once the TC becomes operational, you will be able to get the latest XrML specification directly from the TC.


In terms of the scope of XrML, it is intended to be agnostic to resource that rights are associated with. Also XrML covers the entire spectrum of the lifecycle of the resource, including issuance, delegation, transfer, and other aspects of management of rights, and it supports various business models that are common and useful in practice.

Minutes of Policy Model Subcommittee Teleconference Meeting
25 March 2002
Scribe: Anne Anderson
Present: Carlisle, Simon, Anne, Ernesto, Tim, Pierangela, Polar,
Michiharu, Don
   ACTION ITEM: Polar agreed to attempt to write new resolutions
   for issues PM-3-03, PM-3-03A, and PM-2-05.
   ACTION: Carlisle and Tim look at the last few items in these
   minutes and report whether they participated in the vote.
1. Discussion of OASIS Rights Language Technical Committee
   Attendees discussed how the XACML TC should respond to and
   coordinate with the new OASIS "Rights Language" TC.  Several
   XACML participants see potential overlap.  Carlisle said he
   would talk to Carl Best and others about potential overlap,
   and whether we actually need to have two groups.  Carlisle
   plans to participate in the Rights Language TC in order to
   track its efforts and to ensure XACML coordination occurs.
   Tim pointed out that one currently has to enter into an
   agreement with ContentGuard in order to see their XrML
   specification, so it is difficult to assess any potential
   overlap.  Carlisle will also bring this issue up with Carl
   Simon has viewed the XrML specification and, while not
   prepared to give a full review, made the following points: it
   is much more specialized than the XACML language, such as
   having specialized targets for media.  It does support
   delegation, but does not support composition of policies from
   different sources.
