In the future, these same authorization tokens
will contain specific role-based attributes, allowing only those users who have the need-to-know with access to those enabled Web applications.
Four enhance CORBA in various areas: One defines a protocol for distributed event notification based on IP multicast; another standardizes an architecture for parallel processing of large data volumes; the third defines a service that provides authorization tokens
for the CORBA security service; and the last of these defines interfaces to a dynamic scheduling service for real-time CORBA systems.
One new specification, defining an infrastructure for authorization tokens
in CORBAsecurity, finished member evaluation and started the series of votes leading to formal adoption.
Other standards efforts initiated at this meeting include a mapping of the CORBA protocol GIOP to the telecommunications Stream Control Transmission Protocol or SCTP, and a facility that will serve security authorization tokens
to CORBA applications.
, using the latest public key cryptography technology, protect IP telephony devices from fraudulent or unauthorized access.
