AAA Architecture (AAAarch) Research Group Meeting
Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A.
January 24, 2000
The meeting began at 1:00 p.m. EST. The following people attended:
Cees de Laat
The following participated by telephone conference:
2. Find a minutes-taker
3. Agenda bashing
4. RG - IRTF and AAAARCH procedures/policy (RFC 2014)
chairs members of IRSG
web site hosting
We expect to complete our work over a period of about
obtained IAB approval just before Christmas.
5. Chair activities
Cees de Laat discussed the agenda for a meeting he and
Vollbrecht will be having with Erik Huizer, chair of the IRTF on
Monday January 31. Topics to be discussed include:
RFC - policy
relation AAA - RG
getting help in specialties
AAA meeting report - John Vollbrecht
John Vollbrecht reported on the
meeting of the AAA Working
Group that took place January 20-21 in San Jose, California,
6. State of the 4 drafts and discuss what to extend, freeze and so on
We will adopt the four drafts prepared by the
of the AAA WG. We will seek to publish the first three as
informational RFCs. We will go through a research group last call
7. Work list of the rg and who is contributing what
1. Accounting Model
Tanja Zseby (GMD) is interested in
an accounting model
with examples for policy-based accounting.
2. Message Sequences
Tanja Zseby would like to work
into the message
sequences for each of the different models. Nevil Brownlee will
collaborate. We need to add authentication as well.
3. Security Framework for Distributed Authorization
Look at SET, PKI, attribute
Consider each model
(pull, agent, and push). John Vollbrecht will work on this.
4. Develop framework for mesh of interconnected AAA servers.
David Spence will work on this.
5. Describe interdomain issues using generic model.
6. Work with AAA WG to align long term work with short term work.
7. Interface to policy WG regarding use of policy in AAA.
Gopal Iyengar will work on this.
8. Develop a simulation model.
Leon Gommans will work on this.
9. Data representation
10. Auditing requirements
8. Adelaide issues
what to present
do we want a RG meeting
We will ask for a room of capacity 40 for a RG meeting in Adelaide.
We will also report to the AAA WG on the status of our work.
9. Ongoing work
Simulation/emulation - Leon Gommans
Leon Gommans reported on his work on
a simulation model for a
generic distributed authorization mechanism to be used within a
generic AAA environment.
Leon has contributed an MS Word
Authorization Simulation activity plan" and a Powerpoint slide
entitled, "Simple Generic AAA Simulation Model Architecture". These
are attached to his email of 1/5/2000 with subject of "Simulation
model idea's" that was sent to the AAAarch mailing list.
Accounting in AAAarch - Tanja Zseby
Tanja Zseby reported on GMD's work in
developing an accounting model
Policy protocol Sequences - David Spence
David Spence presented some
ideas toward a framework to
support generic AAA applications implemented across a mesh of
interconnected AAA servers with policy everywhere.
10. Next Meeting
We will hold a telephone conference on Friday February
11, 2000, at 16:00
UTC (11:00 EST). A phone number will be emailed to the AAAarch mailing
