Internet Facility RFP #2
What do we want to include in this RFP (some discussion).
Bill - drafted RFP1 - is this all we want?
No protocol restrictions
Ask for IMF4 & MIME (not implied by SMP)
(Interfaces for encode/decode)
The group started a Brainstorm session to product a list - under the understanding
that we would then hack it, The initial lists generated by this process
were as follows:
Possible Items for RFP#2
Other Potential RFP Topics
MIME (PGP, PEM)
Trusted Third Party services
TTP services (Trusted Third Party)
VRML mapping (really orbos)
The group then proceeded to process the lists generated.
Directory Services X.509
SNMP is part of management services (not part of ISIG RFP)
Work on "Other RFP topics"
Some discussion on listed topics ...
- what would VRML look like!!
TTP issues list written by Bernd then discussed.
Bill and Bernd discussed security related issues (who owns these issues?)
Shel - Perhaps we should have a joint ISIG/SecSig meeting?
Security in an open community on Internet....
Diff domains need to tell security folks their requirements....
Back to Other Lists
Bill asked for abstract of security requirements for Montreal with
precise references (or wait until August?)
Bernol agreed, Shel will schedule joint Security SIG meeting for Monday
VRML requires further research
OTAM (Dave Chiz as potential author)
BACK to RFP#2 List
It all about how to hook into what's currently available. Do we move also
towards pro-activity (how to send a message as opposed to receiving)
Re-issue RFP-1 without restrictions ...
Bill - proposal to group to write revisions to RFP1 during Stresa meeting.
Would move date out a bit. Initial submissions date would then be
for long branch.
Each I/F def apply to C, S or both (interfaces same but could be implemented
Bill to work on revised draft of RFP1 to include additional items and clarifications
(Imap4, MIME, uuencode TFTP, x.400, send-to)
NNTP changing hence not in RFP1 - Ask Craig about this
SNMP Read SYSMAN
Go pro-active instead of current re-active (Video/Audio and take lead)
Fit with telecoms? Streams is one option
More research required for pro-active
We are now left with a tentative list of 3 item for RFP#2
WEBNFS, SMB, DFS - CIFS (Common Internet File Services) Overlap with OTAM
Discuss as part of OTAM discussion
Dave S (of Netscape)
Boundary between ISIG and IETF?
None, its a SIG
RFP1 ability to access Internet as it is today (a path for CORBA environments)
Discussion around these issues
Focus not on wire protocol (get IIOP implicitly)
How does group decide protocol is of interest?
Via RFI and white papers
Bill: Opinion of Firewall RFP ?
Presented, but no Opinion
Shel - any other items?
Bill - Motion to adjourn
