Ciao Piero.

Thanks for your input.

Piero and All - could this lack of progress (specifically in terms of the two highlighted points) be due to the fact that RIF is a reasonably recent specification or are there any intrinsic adoption  problem (e.g. complexity, lack of requirements/needs, no support from vendors, etc.)? Any clue?

I am just curious - this is in some way similar to the issues we came across in a few PLING discussions.
Today lot of (security, privacy, etc.) policy languages are currently available but apparently little progress has been made in terms of (1) their industrial adoption and (2) interoperability among them.

Marco

ciao Marco,

one of the initial use cases of RIF has been provided by REWERSE, WG I2.
it concerns policy exchange as in Protune's trust negotiations.

I don't think there has been much specific further progress along the practical questions you posed

cheers
