RE: [bacnet-oswg] Authorization in BACnet

Are you looking for a discussion of how authentication would work with different network security implementations? Or a standard method for authentication?
Dave Ritter, et al,
DHR-16-10 seems to give little attention to standardizing authentication, but this is a problem that we need also to address, as authorization needs to be built upon authentication.
In discussions at Cimetrics, our IT-oriented people asked whether EAP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extensible_Authentication_Protocol) was considered as the basis for authentication. Note that EAP seems to be a framework, not a protocol (in spite of its name), and it appears to be flexible enough to handle a wide range of underlying network protocols.

Subject: [bacnet-oswg] Authorization in BACnet
I have uploaded version 10 of DHR-16 (Authorization in BACnet). This document is essentially the same as the document discussed in Dallas with minor editorial changes.
In Dallas I did a brief overview of the solution and we spent most of the time discussing OAuth and didn't get a chance to discuss the remainder of the document. I would like to continue the discussion in San Francisco with a focus on the BACnet authorization objects as proposed in the document.
Hope to see you in San Francisco. Thanks David
