DDSSEC12 — Determining when to use DCPSParticipantMessageSecure

  • Key: DDSSEC12-28
  • Status: open  
  • Source: OCI ( Adam Mitz)
  • Summary:

    The last paragraph of 7.4.2 indicates that TopicSecurityAttributes::is_liveliness_protected is used to determine if a liveliness message should be sent using the new DCPSParticipantMessageSecure builtin endpoint or the old DCPSParticipantMessage builtin endpoint.

    However it is not clear which topic's TopicSecurityAttributes are to be used. The liveliness message essentially belongs to the participant and not any given topic (see RTPS v2.2 8.4.13.5). Should the security spec use ParticipantSecurityAttributes here instead?
