Attachments ASON control plane session security - this liaison in original WinWord format
Body
In the context of the ASON Control Plane work, Q14 is starting work on the
operations and procedures required during Control plane initialisation,
reconfiguration and recovery (G.7716).
These procedures require that authentication and general security issues are
properly addressed, and we therefore ask your advice with respect to state of
the art techniques that are available to us to progress our work.
The action deadline that we are requesting will make your response available
in time for our next interim meeting in June. If you are unable to respond in
time for that meeting, we still look forward to a response some time in the
future. Our next meeting after June will start on October 30th, 2006.
