[RFC6940] defines the base protocol for REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD), which allows for application-specific extensions by Usages. The present document defines such a RELOAD Usage for managing shared write access to RELOAD Resources and a mechanism to store Resources with variable names. The Usage for Shared Resources in RELOAD (ShaRe) enables overlay users to share their exclusive write access to specific Resource/Kind pairs with others. Shared Resources form a basic primitive for enabling various coordination and notification schemes among distributed peers. Write permission is controlled by an Access Control List (ACL) Kind that maintains a chain of Authorized Peers for a particular Shared Resource. A newly defined USER-CHAIN-ACL access control policy enables shared write access in RELOAD.

              A Usage for Shared Resources in RELOAD (ShaRe)


   This document defines a REsource LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD)    Usage for managing shared write access to RELOAD Resources.  Shared    Resources in RELOAD (ShaRe) form a basic primitive for enabling    various coordination and notification schemes among distributed    peers.  Access in ShaRe is controlled by a hierarchical trust    delegation scheme maintained within an access list.  A new    USER-CHAIN-ACL access policy allows authorized peers to write a    Shared Resource without owning its corresponding certificate.  This    specification also adds mechanisms to store Resources with a variable    name that is useful whenever peer-independent rendezvous processes    are required.
