Hi all,

As agreed two weeks ago I've been working on the policy framework
document to cover explicit trust domain assignment via trust policies.

Link: (note that you might not be able to see the image in section 2.3
correctly yet, sorry...)

Modifications to the Policy Framework document:
-- Section 2.1 Framework Overview: already made changes to this

-- Section 2.2 Layer Model: already added a third layer, Trust Domain
Control Layer.

-- Section 2.3 Logical Model: already made changes to this subsections.
Created a new dataflow diagram (see attached).
	-- Problems with the dataflow diagram (need some help with svg

-- Divide content into different documents --> would appreciated if
someone else could do this.
Policy Framework document: sections 2, 3.1, 3.3, 3.4 and 3.5 of current
doc could remain in the framework.
Policy XACML Profile document: sections 3.2, 3.6-3.20 and 4 of current
doc can be moved to XACML profile.
Examples document: section 5 could go into a separate examples document.
Out of scope can go into requirements,   Added to  
framework would be trust domain model contribution from Nokia.

-- Section 2.4 Access Control Policy Structure: need to add a Trust
Policy Structure. --> I'll take this action.

-- Need to add sections 3.1, 3.3, 3.5 and 3.5 to the framework doc. -->
I'll take this action.

-- XACML Profile document: need to divide this document into two
sections, one part covering access control policies and another on for
trust policies. This wouldn't require creating anything *new*, just
reorganising the content of the current sections 3.2, 3.6-3.20 and 4.
--> Could someone else start doing this?

I am happy to continue with the document focusing on policy framework
but I would like to ask the group for some support in the changes needed
for the policy profile document.

Happy to discuss further in the call later today.
