[M] Security schema

Description (last modified by ko23) (diff)

The security component of the security has been removed from MOLES in 1.3.

1) I think it would be better to call this 1.4 now 2) It would be better that the new namespace is

ndg.nerc.ac.uk/security rather than moles/security

3) Would it not be better that the new import was from the foehn version rather than a local copy (easier for the rest of us to work with)?

I was expecting to see something like an "accessControlPolicyType" in the security schema, so all that's left in MOLES/CSML schema would be a one line reference something like:

<xs:element name="accessControlPolicy" type="ndgsec:accessControlPolicyType" minOccurs="0"/>

Rather than just pulling out the dgSecurityCondition. Otherwise we still duplicate all the below in MOLES & CSML:

<xs:element name="accessControlPolicy" minOccurs="0">



<xs:element name="accessControlPolicyURL" type="xs:anyURI"/> <xs:element name="accessControlPolicyText" type="xs:string"/> <xs:element ref="molessec:dgSecurityCondition" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>

To address Dom's comment:

Ah, you want the higher level element as well. In MOLES, there's security on the metadata as well as the data, but there's no need for policies 'cos if you're not allowed to see the metadata then you can't see the attached policies (""He that would keep a secret must keep it secret that he hath a secret to keep." :-). I've added "accessControlPolicyType" to moles_security1.01, which has been uploaded to the svn.

To address Brian's comments:

1) Hmmmm... given that there no functional difference, I'd have thought that a new version number would imply different functionality: split the difference?

2) Re namespace: I asked for comments from directly concerned parties last week and received no objections. I don't want to have to go through the testing process again until a later version. Not a big issue I'd have thought.

3) foehn? Is it accessible to BODC, NOCS, and PML? Seriously, there'll be a task for Sue when this is all tested to put the schemae up on ndg.nerc.ac.uk which will give everyone a network accessible schemaLocation.
