9 Generic AAA server Rule based engine Application Specific Module Auth rulesEvents API AAA Server building block Types of communication: 1: “The” AAA protocol 2: interface (API) to app specific module (addressing!) 3: interface (API or connection) to repositories (e.g. LDAP) 9 of 13 Rule example: Auth_A = (B>9).or. C.and. D

10 Generic AAA server Rule based engine Application Specific Module PolicyEvents Service 5 Types of communication: 5: Towards service (f.e. COPS, CLI, SNMPv3) Pushing the buttons 10 of 13

11 Generic AAA server Rule based engine Application specific Module Policy Events Accounting/ Metering Service 5 Acct Data 3 5 AAA Server with Accounting as Part of the Service 11 of 13

12 AAA Server with Accounting as Separate Service Generic AAA server Rule based engine Application Specific Module Policy Events Accounting Module Service 5 Metering 6 Acct Data of 13

13 Questions Resource discovery AAA discovery Is AAA high or low in middleware? All A's together or not? Should AAA be visible in the app or only stay in middleware and this way solve its user interface problem Transport TCP/UDP/IPApplications AAAAAA R1R2 CORBACORBA LDAPLDAP BB...

15 RG-Goals-1 Specific goals of the RG are: develop generic AAA model by specifically including Authentication and Accounting develop audibility framework specification that allows the AAA system functions to be checked in a multi- organization environment develop a model that supports management of a "mesh" of interconnected AAA Servers define distributed policy framework, coordinate with policy framework WG and others develop an accounting model that allows authorization to define the type of accounting processing required for each session 12c of 13

16 RG-Goals-2 Specific goals of the RG are: implement a simulation model that allows experimentation with the the proposed architectural models (also work on an emulation) describe interdomain issues using generic model work with AAA WG to align short term AAA protocol requirements with long term requirements as much as possible complete the work in Q (ambitious) RFC !!!! 12d of 13
