Abstract

This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document Interchange Architecture (DIA) Services whereby an enterprise can associate processes or events which, upon occurring, could circumvent the security of the document. A mechanism is needed which permits different enterprises to identify a common frame of reference which defines events and/or processes which, upon occurring, relinquish the security attributes of a document. No mechanism currently exists in the DIA Services which defines a reference to multiple events or processes which, upon occurring, relinquish the security attributes which were originally defined for the document.

Reference for Associating Multiple Events Which Relinquish Security Attributes of a Document

       This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document
Interchange Architecture (DIA) Services whereby  an enterprise can
associate processes or events which, upon occurring, could circumvent
the security of the document. A mechanism is needed which permits
different enterprises to identify a common frame of reference which
defines events and/or processes which, upon occurring, relinquish the
security attributes of a document. No mechanism currently exists in
the DIA Services  which defines a reference to multiple events or
processes which, upon occurring, relinquish the security attributes
which were originally defined for the document.

      By creating an access control object which contains a
self-defining field which uniquely defines a document which contains
the definition of different events permits enterprises to interchange
information as to whether the security attributes of a document
should still be enforced.

      This mechanism  permits an enterprise to convey information as
to where information regarding the security validity of a document
can be ascertained and provides a common frame of reference in which
enterprises can verify if the security constraints are still valid
based on the definition of events. Enterprises can thus define
multiple events upon which the enforcement of security constraints
can be ascertained.
