RE: PLING and Policies in the Cloud/Cloud Computing

We are working on a study of Cloud Computing security issues (including experts from HP). We will include policy issues. I could present the work so far on the call if that would be useful.

Subject: PLING and Policies in the Cloud/Cloud Computing

Today I am attending and presenting at the 2nd Open Group Security Practitioners Conference, London -

Presentations are going to be around The Cloud, Cloud Computing and Security & Identity in the Cloud along with discussions of the involved paradigm shifts, in terms of security, privacy and identity management.

I see that a paradigm shift is going also to happen in terms of defining policies and policy management, moving from a close/central model (enterprise-based) to a federated, distributed and boundariless model.

I think this topic should be of concern and relevance to W3C and in particular the W3C PLING audience.

Do you have any specific case study, requirements or issues to share - in this domain?
Any aspect you'd like to discuss in one of the coming PLING conference meetings?
