Title: Integrity, Privacy, and Security in
Open Pluggable Edge Services (OPES) for
Author: M. Stecher
Date: May 2007
I-D Tag: draft-ietf-opes-smtp-security-03.txt
The Open Pluggable Edge Services (OPES) framework is application
agnostic. Application-specific adaptations extend that framework.
Previous work has focused on HTTP and work for SMTP is in progress.
These protocols differ fundamentally in the way data flows, and it
turns out that existing OPES requirements and IAB considerations for
OPES need to be reviewed with regards to how well they fit for SMTP
adaptation. This document analyzes aspects about the integrity of
SMTP and mail message adaptation by OPES systems and about privacy and
security issues when the OPES framework is adapted to SMTP. It also lists
requirements that must be considered when creating the "SMTP
adaptation with OPES" document.
The intent of this document is to capture this information before the
current OPES working group shuts down. This is to provide input for
subsequent working groups or individual contributors that may pick up
the OPES/SMTP work at a later date. This memo provides information for
the Internet community.
This document is a product of the Open Pluggable Edge Services
Working Group of the IETF.
