Subject: RE: Trading Partner Logical Identification based on EDIFA

I agree, but let's be careful with the word "transport".  Some security
functions are the responsibility of the transport implementation (e.g.
SSL), and some are probably the responsibility of the messaging service.
As I have noted in other contexts, the messaging service needs to be aware
of what's going on in the transport function.

What I'm referring to is the specific transport level "security mechanisms"
the messaging service needs to interface with, for example SSL, and Realm
Security (basic auth) with regard to HTTP. In the case of FTP it's
username/password. The transport must be capable of dealing with these
security mechanisms because they can prevent transport from occurring.
