This document describes the representation of a session
authorization policy element for supporting policy-based per-session
authorization and admission control. The goal of session
authorization is to allow the exchange of information between
network elements in order to authorize the use of resources for a
service and to co-ordinate actions between the signaling and
transport planes. This document describes how a process on a system
authorizes the reservation of resources by a host and then provides
that host with a session authorization policy element which can be
inserted into a resource reservation protocol (e.g. the RSVP PATH
message) to facilitate proper and secure reservation of those
resources within the network. We describe the encoding of session
authorization information as a policy element conforming to the
format of a Policy Data object (RFC-2750) and provide details
relating to operations, processing rules and error scenarios.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
