Subject: RE: [xacml] Groups - DLP-NAC profile uploaded

First of all, I don't believe a non-routing host needs to know the mask to send messages. It just puts them out on the adapter (LAN). The Gateway (router) on the LAN is supposed to forward the message if required, based on its knowledge of the subnetting.

Second, IP Addresses in XACML may refer to any system, including a Gateway (router), therefore the subnetting may be relevant and there should be some way to specify it.
