Abstract

This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document Interchange Architecture (DIA) Services whereby an enterprise can attach to a document a comment which describes an event which relinquishes the document from its security attributes. After defining such an event, an enterprise may wish to associate a comment to describe the event in detail. An enterprise may wish to describe why such an event was associated with the security characteristics of the document. A mechanism is needed which permits enterprises to interchange this information. No mechanism currently exists in the DIA Services which identifies a comment on why the security attributes are no longer in effect for a document.

Descriptive Text for Relinquishing the Security Attributes Of a Document

       This article describes a mechanism for IBM's Document
Interchange Architecture (DIA) Services whereby an enterprise can
attach to a document a comment which describes an event which
relinquishes the document from its security attributes. After
defining such an event, an enterprise may wish to associate a comment
to describe the event in detail. An enterprise may wish to describe
why such an event was associated with the security characteristics of
the document. A mechanism is needed which permits enterprises to
interchange this information. No mechanism currently exists in the
DIA Services which identifies a comment on why the security
attributes are no longer in effect for a document.

      An enterprise or individual can comment on the security
characteristics of a document by creating an access control object
which contains a self-defining field which permits descriptive
information about the relinquishing of security attributes of a
document.

      This mechanism  permits an enterprise to convey descriptive
information as to why the security characteristics of a document were
relinquished. This information can be used to describe other events
which lead to the event which signified that the security attributes
should be discarded. This information could aid an enterprise in
conveying historical information on the security characteristics of a
document.
