PIDS11 — semantics of aliases in context of correlation manager

  • Key: PIDS11-9
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2738
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: I think the spec needs some narrative on the semantics of aliases.
    Specifically, it fails to point out that the receipt of an alias from a
    source domian does not necessarily imply that its value is to be used as an
    alias in the correlating domain.

    This clarification is important because if a VIP (say, the president) is
    anonymous under an alias in a source domain it might be entirely appropriate
    to treat that alais as a real name in the correlating domain. Similarly,
    the correlating domain should be free to maintain its own alias for persons
    independent of source domains.
