Subject: Re: issue 57 on security parameters


Are the 3 values technical values (for the benefit of the under lying technology)
or business values (facilitates the business semantics).
I suspect the former may be true. What is the meaning of the values in and of
themselves. Confidential, tamperproof, and authenticated  are concepts taken from
the UN/ECE and ABA standards and are boolean in definition (Yes,No). At the BTV
level, the semantics are still business semantics. I think we need some clarity on
the meaning of the values.
