Authentication and Privilege Attribute
Security Application with related Key Distribution Functions -
Part 1, 2 and 3
2nd edition (March 1996)
This Standard ECMA-219 defines three applications:
- an Authentication Application,
a Privilege Attributes Application,
a Key Distribution Application.
These are distributed Security Applications that provide services concerned with authentication and access control, along with related key distribution information. This definition includes:
data elements for authentication and access control purposes,
services for the authentication of human users of computer based systems
as well as other active entities,
services for the provision of Privilege Attributes for purposes of access
control in distributed open systems,
the means of protecting authentication information and Privilege Attributes
in interchange between open systems,
key distribution information for establishing the keys used in this protection,
The last two of these facilities requires that the above applications support a Key Distribution Service, which can either be provided integrally, or as a separate application.
