I would like to request your attention to 2 internet-drafts we have just submitted to the
The first one is a framework draft on session setup with media authorization.
This first draft describes the different models where our new policy element (described in our second draft)
may be used. Establishing multimedia streams must take into account requirements
for end-to-end QoS, authorization of network resource usage and
accurate accounting for resources used. During session set up,
policies may be enforced to ensure that the media streams being
requested lie within the bounds of the service profile established
for the requesting host. Similarly, when a host requests resources
to provide a certain QoS for a packet flow, policies may be enforced
to ensure that the required resources lie within the bounds of the
resource profile established for the requesting host.
Our second draft describes a new policy element called AUTH_SESSION.
This document describes the representation of session authorization
information in the POLICY_DATA object for supporting
policy-based per-session authorization and admission control in
Please review both drafts and provide comments to the authors. Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and cheers,
