Subject: Minutes TC call 9 November 2006
I Roll Call & Administration Attendees Hal Lockhart (Co-chair) Bill Parducci (Co-chair, minutes) Anthony Nadalin Argyn Kuketayev Abbie Barbir Kamalendu Biswas Rich Levinson Erik Rissanen Anne Anderson Seth Proctor David Staggs Quorum was achieved (76% per Kavi) VOTE: Approve minutes from October 26, 2006 meeting Approved unanimously. II SDD TC liaise Bill reviewed the conversation that Hal and he had with members of the SDD TC. A follow up discussion is planned during the SDD TC call (11:00am ET today). III Oasis IPR There is an outstanding motion that needs to be concluded regarding adoption of the new Oasis IPR policies for the TC. http://www.oasis-open.org/who/intellectualproperty.php Since the original motivation for conducting an IPR transition vote was to be ready in case the TC did not finish its work before the IPR transition deadline in 2007, there was some discussion of making the vote take effect only if the TC had not finished its work by the deadline. Hal noted that the IPR transition process indicates that a transition automatically occurs within 14 days of a successful ballot (where each organization's official OASIS representative votes), so a delayed transition could not be done as part of the official balloting vote. The general consensus was that a transition to "RF on Limited Terms" would make the IPR status of XACML 3.0 more clear, and so a ballot should be conducted prior to XACML 3.0 approval in any case. MOTION: Anne moved that the TC ask Oasis to conduct a ballot on the transition of the TC to "RF on Limted" IPR mode. SECOND: Bill seconded the motion VOTE: Approved unanimously IV Issues #53 Computational complexity of delegation Erik introduced the TC to work done by Olav Bandman that shows the proposed delegation model to be NP-Complete. The proof requires IndirectDelegatesConditions. Erik reviewed the problem and possible alternatives. These are posted on the wiki. http://wiki.oasis-open.org/xacml/IssuesList #54 Number of policies required by administrative policy delegation Anne entered a new issue that some XACML users have with the apparently large number of policies that would need to be created and managed in order to do delegation with the Administrative Policy mechanism. David Staggs concurred that this is a problem for the VHA. Erik volunteered to work with others to clarify whether this is an issue and to help explain Use Cases. meeting adjourned.
