Claes,

The proposal looks good. The role of the "manager" as I understand it is
equivalent to the web runtime's collective roles of policy
info/decision/enforcement point in the BONDI architecture. This is also
what I pointed out in response to Richard's proposal, i.e. re the
OpenProvider Container, which I think has the same role as the manager
in your diagrams.

The question I have for Powerbox is whether the authors intend it to be
sufficiently context-aware, so that it can act in this policy role.

Thanks, 
Bryan Sullivan | AT&T

Hi Again,

I tried to attach the presentation as a pdf but it didn't get out on the
DAP list. So I posted it to the W3C general archive instead (thanks for
your advice Dom). Here is the link:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2010Mar/att-0004/SEMC_-_
Local_REST_APIs.pdf

Here is the text from my original mail again:

Based on research and prototyping by a colleague at SEMC  I submit a
proposal for how API access control through "user authorization" and/or
"pre-arranged trust" through a policy framework can fit into a REST
based architecture.

This work has been done independently of the "Powerbox" proposal but
currently I do not see any contradictions with the Google proposal.

Best regards
  Claes
