Rights Management

Dave reviewed his e-mail outlining his proposed requirements for rights management. The group discussed user identity as a requirement versus making it a desirable property that only appeared as an informative note in the final standard(s). The concept of password-based user rights can also be addressed using our current scheme for license management.

Work Plan

Discussion of the fee assessment is planned for the next meeting. John asked about the estimate from Joe Daniel, and the working group agreed to check within their entities for support at the $8K to $10K level. Steven plans to check with DASC leadership for feedback on timing the receipt of assessment fees.
