  • Summary:

    Summary: I"m having real problems trying to interpret the specification on the
    own_credentials list.
    I"m working from the Security Spec 1.2, 5 Jan 1998
    It seems to be implied by paragraph 4 of Description of
    Facilities on page 15-87, which says:

    Credential objects are created as a result of:

    o Authentication (see Section 15.5.3, "Authentication of Principals", on
    page 15-85.
    o Copying an existing Credentials Object
    o Asking for a Credentials object via Current (see Section 15.5.6,
    "Security Operations on Current" on page 15-97).

    and, by paragraph 7 of section SecurityLevel2::Current


    Any application owns a set of credentials which it obtains through the
    process of authentication of the principal that initiates the execution of
    the program, and further from other credentials that such a principal
    might bestow upon the application. This attribute returns this set of

    Okay, so the problem is that these statements imply, but do not explicitly
    stipulate that the PrincipalAuthenticator puts Credentials objects on the
    "own_credentials" list.
