OGF Public Comments

Public comments are a very important part of the OGF document approval process.  Through public comments, documents are given scrutiny by people with a wide range of expertise and interests. Ideally, a OGF document will be self-contained, relying only on the other documents and standards it cites to be clear and useful.  Public comments of any type are welcomed, from small editorial comments to broader comments about the scope or merit of the proposed document.  The simple act of reading a document and providing a public comment that you read it and found it suitable for publication is very useful, and provides valuable feedback to the document authors.

Thank you for making public comments on this document!

Some brief comments:

1. In Figure 4 is used to designate a sample network as private. It may be more useful to have a separate parameter to flag a network as private or public. Certainly, one could determine this by visual inspection of the IP address (e.g., 176.16.x.x is private), but, programmatically, it would be easier to use a binary flag. For example:

Type: Enum {public, private}
Multiplicity: 1
Mutability: Immutable
Description: Type of network

2. If the Compute type had a temporal attribute such as ‚Äúcreation date‚Ä?, it may facilitate the management of virtual machines. For example:

Attribute: occi.compute.creationdate
Type: dateTime
Multiplicity: 1
Mutability: immutable
Description: Creation date

3. The document is lacking any mention of security. How will this be addressed?

Kind regards,

Pursuant to the comment above, let me point you to the section on page 16 of GFD.152 on "writing the security requirements section"

In this case, it may be sufficient as a starting point to note that security protocols appropriate to http are also applicable to OCCI, and also describe any further considerations related to AuthN and AuthZ. Beyond this, you can point to VOMS and a range of current security practices in RESTful protocols. In any case, this is a required section for any OGF document!
