This message contains the agenda for the policy meeting
SUN will be hosting on Feb 21 at its Sun Burlington MA.

This meeting will focus on the characterization of the
policy related functionality required to support the
interoperable use of mechanisms, including, but not
limited to, the SOAP message security mechanisms being
defined by the Web Services Security TC. The purpose of
the meeting will be to capture these requirements in
proposed charters for one or more open forums that will
serve the industry by providing solutions to these
important problems.

We intend to convene this meeting without requiring a
pre-meeting legal agreement. The meeting will be a
discussion of an important class of interoperability
problems and will not attempt to craft or enhance a
technical specification built on contributions from
the attendees. No attendee should have any expectations
regarding the confidentiality of the meeting, its contents,
or its results. Each speaker must be responsible for what
they choose to say, keeping in mind that no expectation of
confidentiality should be presumed to apply to the statements
they make.

We request that those who have not yet done so confirm their
intentto attend or participate by teleconference so that we
can reserve sufficient space and call-in capacity. We also
encourage you to share this invitation with others who you
feel may be interested or should participate. We will
distribute call in details before the meeting.

The meeting will begin at 8:30 A.M. (EST) and end at
about 5:30 P.M.

The following is the proposed Agenda:

8:00-8:30 Continental Breakfast

8:30-8:45 Welcome and Introductions

8:45-9:00 Agenda Review and Refinement

9:00-10:30 Use Cases and Example Scenarios

     What types of policy negotiation problems do we seek
     solutions for?

     What is the nature of the interactions whose properties
     are being negotiated?

     What is the relationship of the negotiation to
     the interaction whose properties are being negotiated?

     Where in the interactions is there a need to apply
     the policies of the various actors in an interaction?

10:30-10:45 Break

10:45-12:30 Detailed Problem Characterization and Decomposition

     Consideration of the following aspects and others
     as appropriate.

     The distribution or other communication of
     policy between interacting entities

     The grouping of related policy statements or the
     composition of policy from smaller perhaps reusable
     statment groups.

     The reconciliation of policy negotiation with
     a layered processing model

     The need for a semantic model in which to
     configure, manage, and interpret (including
     in combination) groups of policy staments.

     The need to allow for (perhaps decentralized)
     evolution of the policy framework or statement model.

12:30-1:30 Lunch

1:30-3:15 Presentation and collaborative development of
    Work descriptions suitable for inclusion in the
    charters of one or more forums.

3:30-3:45 Break

3:45-5:50 Charter Discussion

     What forums (eg. TCs), if any, do we perceive as the
     appropriate host for a particular piece of work?

     Definition of next steps:

     How do we transfer problem description(s) to the
     appropriate forums, including potentially by deciding
     to charter a new forum?

     Discussion of forum specific requirements, collection
     of advocates, sponsors, etc, to meet the requirements
     of the standard organization.
