General Status

In ballot. John has collected a number of comments from others at Mentor and shared a couple of these regarding clause 7 which are discussed below. Another Mentor comment is that a summary of pragmas, including which are new, changed, or depreciated, would be helpful. If we do this, John suggests it may be best in a new annex.

Clause 1 - Overview

No further changes are pending.

Clause 2 - Normative References

No further changes are pending.

Clause 3 - Definitions, acronyms, abbreviations

No further changes are pending.

Clause 4 - Trust model

No further changes are pending.

Clause 5 - Interoperability

No further changes are pending.

Clause 6 - Key Management

No further changes are pending.

Clause 7 - Rights Management

Consider adding encryption envelope examples.

John reported on some feedback from Mentor. One item is regarding the digest, of the difficultly of understanding what went wrong if either the encryptor or decryptor does not do an accurate calculation. The other item is a concern about transformations of rights through email or other means invalidating the digest. Gael mentioned that a similar concern was addressed in the past by using base64 encoding. John pointed out that this will not always help here because the rights are in clear-text, and a line could have a length large enough that an email program might add a newline, changing the valid digest value. John and Dave both said that email as a transport may not be supportable and a zip or other attachment may be required. We will need to consider how best to respond.

Clause 8 - License Management

No further changes are pending. An update to the reference implementation for the Accellera forum is pending.

Clause 9 - Visibility

No further changes are pending.

Clause 10 - Common Rights

No further changes are pending.

Annex A - Bibliography

No further changes are pending.

Annex B - Other known issues with IP protection (informative, not normative)

No further changes are pending.
