  1. OMG Issue

SEC18 — CCM spec and Security Service 1.7 do not agree

  • Key: SEC18-10
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3630
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    The CCM spec changed some of the interfaces in the Security Service to
    local ones. However, apparenlty some interfaces were not made local
    that should be made local, if understand things correctly. Here are
    suggested changes:

    1. The SecurityLevel2::TargetCredentials interface is derived
    from the Credentials object, which the CCM spec made
    local. This means that the TargetCredentials interface
    must also be declared local.

    2. The SecurityLevel2::SecurityManager interface is apparently
    locality constrained (please improve/add comment), but the
    CCM spec does not change its interface to be local. This
    is a problem since the
    SecurityManager::remove_own_credentials() method takes a
    "in Credentials creds" parameter, i.e.:

    void remove_own_credentials(
    in Credentials creds

    but the CCM spec changes the Credentials interface to be
    local. As such, the SecurityLevel2::SecurityManager
    interface should also be local in the CCM spec in order for
    the above method to be valid.
