Subject: RE: [xacml] Generalization
Yes. Anne has stated clearly exactly what I had in mind. All the best. Tim. -----Original Message----- From: Anne Anderson [mailto:Anne.Anderson@Sun.COM] Sent: Monday, November 15, 2004 11:57 AM To: Polar Humenn Cc: 'XACML'; Anne.Anderson@Sun.COM Subject: Re: [xacml] Generalization It is my understanding (standard IANAL disclaimers) that IBM's patent covers only a specific way of implementing Obligations: one in which the PDP itself interprets and fulfills the Obligations by use of plug-in modules. This is NOT any kind of official statement from Sun, just my personal and private understanding. I encourage others to read the IBM patent for themselves if in doubt. I don't think Tim's generalization and its typical use of Obligations would use such an implementation, since the standard model is that the PEP interprets and fulfills the Obligations, and not the PDP.
