Abstract

   This document defines a number of changes and extensions to the
   Policy Core Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema
   (RFC 3703) based on the model extensions defined by the Policy Core
   Information Model (PCIM) Extensions (RFC 3460). These changes and
   extensions consist of new LDAP object classes and attribute types.
   Some of the schema items defined in this document re-implement
   existing concepts in accordance with their new semantics introduced
   by RFC 3460. The other schema items implement new concepts, not
   covered by RFC 3703. This document updates RFC 3703.

1. Introduction

   This document defines a number of changes and extensions to the
   Policy Core Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema
   (RFC 3703) based on the model extensions defined by the Policy Core
   Information Model (PCIM) Extensions (RFC 3460). These changes and
   extensions consist of new LDAP object classes and attribute types.
   Some of the schema items defined in this document re-implement
   existing concepts in accordance with their new semantics introduced
   by RFC 3460. The other schema items implement new concepts, not
   covered by RFC 3703. This document updates RFC 3703.

   In addition to the concepts defined by RFC 3460, this document
   introduces two new classes: pcelsVendorVariableAuxClass and
   pcelsVendorValueAuxClass. These classes provide a standard extension
   mechanism for vendor-specific policy variables and policy values
   that have not been specifically modeled.

   Within the context of this document, the term 'PCELS' (Policy Core
   Extension LDAP Schema) is used to refer to the LDAP object class
   and attribute type definitions and the associated recommendations
   contained in this document.

2. Relationship to other Policy Framework Documents

   This document contains an LDAP schema mapping for the classes
   defined in the "Policy Core Information Model (PCIM) Extensions"
   [PCIM_EXT]. The LDAP schema defined in this document is an extension
   to the "Policy Core Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
   Schema" [PCLS], which defines the mapping of the "Policy Core
   Information Model -- Version 1 Specification" [PCIM] to an LDAP
   schema.

   These three documents ([PCIM], [PCIM_EXT] and [PCLS]) are a
   prerequisite for reading and understanding this document.

   Other documents may subsequently be produced, with mappings of the
   same model to other storage or transport technologies.


3. Inheritance Hierarchy for PCELS

   The object class and attribute type names defined in this document
   are prefixed 'pcels'.

   The following diagram illustrates the combined class hierarchy for
   the LDAP object classes defined in this document and other documents
   as follows:
      - the class names prefixed 'pcels' are new
      - the class names prefixed 'pcim' are defined in [PCLS]
      - the class names prefixed 'dlm1' are defined in [CIM_LDAP]
      - the class named 'top' is defined in [LDAP_SCHEMA]

   All the new object classes except for pcelsVendorVariableAuxClass
   and pcelsVendorValueAuxClass, are mapped from concepts defined or
   modified by [PCIM_EXT]. The two new classes not mapped from
   [PCIM_EXT] are new concepts introduced in this document.

4. General Discussion of Mapping the Policy Core Information Model
   Extensions to LDAP

   The object classes described in this document contain certain
   optimizations for a directory that uses LDAP as its access protocol.
   One example of this is the use of auxiliary class attachment to LDAP
   entries for the realization of some of the associations defined in
   the information model. For instance, the aggregation of a specific
   SimplePolicyCondition to a reusable PolicyRule [PCIM_EXT] may be
   realized by attaching a pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass to a
   pcelsRuleInstance entry.

   Note that other data stores might need to implement the associations
   differently.


4.1 Summary of Class and Association Mappings

   The classes and their properties defined in the in the information
   model [PCIM_EXT] map directly to LDAP object classes and attribute
   types.

   The associations in the information model map to one or more of the
   following options:
      1. attributes that reference DNs (Distinguished Names)
      2. Directory Information Tree (DIT) containment
         (i.e., superior-subordinate relationships) in LDAP.
      3. auxiliary class attachment
      4. association object classes and attributes that reference DNs

   The details of this mapping are discussed case by case in section 5.

   The pcelsVendorVariableAuxClass and pcelsVendorValueAuxClass classes
   are not mapped from [PCIM_EXT]. These classes are introduced in this
   document as a new extension mechanism for vendor-specific policy
   variables and policy values that have not been specifically modeled.
   Just like for any other schema elements defined in this document or
   in [PCLS], a particular submodel schema will not, in general, need
   to use vendor specific variable and value classes. Submodel schemas
   SHOULD apply the recommendations of section 5.10 of [PCIM_EXT] with
   regards to the supported and unsupported elements.

4.2 Summary of changes since PCLS

   This section provides an overview of the changes relative to [PCLS]
   defined in this document:

   1. The concept of a coherent set of policies is introduced by means
   of two new object classes: pcelsPolicySet and
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation. These classes enable the aggregation and
   relative prioritization of policies (rules and/or groups). The
   attribute pcelsPriority used by the pcelsPolicySetAssociation object
   class indicates the relative priority of an aggregated component.
   The new policy aggregation mechanism provides an alternative to the
   aggregation mechanism defined by [PCLS] (pcimRuleContainmentAuxClass
   and/or pcimGroupContainmentAuxClass attached to a pcimGroup).

   2. The attribute pcimRoles defined by [PCLS] is used here by the
   pcelsPolicySet object class. Thus, the role based policy selection
   mechanism is extended to all the subclasses of pcelsPolicySet.

   3. A new attribute pcelsDecisionStrategy is added on the
   pcelsPolicySet class as a mapping from the decision mechanism.

   4. A new class pcelsGroup (with two subclasses), implements the
   modified semantics of the PolicyGroup in accordance with [PCIM_EXT].
   This new class inherits from its superclass pcelsPolicySet the
   ability to aggregate (with relative priority) other policy rules or
   groups.

   5. A new class pcelsRule (with two subclasses), implements the
   modified semantics of the PolicyRule in accordance with [PCIM_EXT].
   This new class does not include an absolute priority attribute but
   instances of non-abstract subclasses of pcelsRule can be prioritized
   relative to each other within a System (behavior inherited from its
   superclass: pcelsPolicySet). The pcelsRule class also inherits from
   pcelsPolicySet the ability to aggregate other policy rules or groups.
   Hence, the ability to construct nested rule structures of arbitrary
   complexity.

   6. A new attribute pcelsExecutionStrategy is added to the
   pcelsRule and pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass classes to allow the
   specification of the expected behavior in case of multiple actions
   aggregated by a rule or by a compound action.

   7. Compound Conditions: The pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass class is
   added in order to map the CompoundPolicyCondition class. A new class,
   pcelsConditionAssociation realizes the aggregation of policy
   conditions in a pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass. The same association
   class is used to aggregate policy conditions in a pcelsRule.

INTERNET-DRAFT                  PCELS                        April 2004


   8. Compound Actions: The pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass class is
   added in order to map the CompoundPolicyAction class. A new class,
   pcelsActionAssociation realizes the aggregation of policy actions in
   a pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass. The same association class is used to
   aggregate policy actions in a pcelsRule.

   9. Simple Conditions, Simple Actions, Variables and Values: The
   simple condition, simple action, variable and value classes defined
   by [PCIM_EXT] are directly mapped to LDAP object classes. These are:
   pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass, pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass,
   pcelsVariable and its subclasses, and pcelsValueAuxClass and its
   subclasses.

   10. A general extension mechanism is introduced for representing
   policy variables and values that have not been specifically modeled.
   The mechanism is intended for vendor-specific extensions.

   11. Reusable Policy Repository: A new class (with two subclasses),
   pcelsReusableContainer is created as a subclass of pcimRepository.
   While maintaining compatibility with older [PCLS] implementations,
   the addition of this class acknowledges the intent of [PCIM_EXT] to
   avoid the potential for confusion with the Policy Framework component
   named Policy Repository. The new class enables many-to-many
   associations between reusable policy containers.

   12. The ReusablePolicy association defined in [PCIM_EXT] is realized
   through subordination to an instance of a non-abstract subclass of
   pcelsReusableContainer. Thus, reusable policy components (groups,
   rules, conditions, actions, variables and values) may be defined as
   stand-alone entries or stand-alone groups of related entries
   subordinated (DIT contained) to a pcelsReusableContainer.

   13. Device level filter classes are added to the schema.

   14. The pcelsRoleCollection class is added to the schema to allow
   the association of policy roles to resources represented as LDAP
   entries.


4.3 Impact on existing implementations of the Policy Core LDAP Schema

   In general, the intent of PCELS is to extend the functionality
   offered by the Policy Core LDAP Schema. For the most part, the
   compatibility with [PCLS] is preserved. The few cases where
   compatibility can not be achieved due to fundamental changes imposed
   by [PCIM_EXT], are defined here as alternatives to the original
   implementation.






Pana, et al.             Expires: October 2004                [page 14]

INTERNET-DRAFT                  PCELS                        April 2004


   PCELS does not obsolete nor deprecate the concepts implemented by
   [PCLS]. The new LDAP schema items are defined in this document in a
   way that avoids, to the extent possible, interference into the normal
   operation of a reasonably well executed implementation of [PCLS].
   The intent is to permit at least a harmless coexistence of the two
   models in the same data repository.

   It should be noted, however, that the PCELS introduces the following
   changes that may have an impact on some [PCLS] implementations:

   1. Some attributes originally used only by pcimRule or pcimGroup
   are now also used by classes unknown to [PCLS] implementations
   (pcelsPolicySet, pcelsRule and pcelsGroup). In particular the
   attribute pcimRoles is also used by pcelsPolicySet for role based
   policy selection.

   2. Condition and action association classes originally used by only
   pcimRule are now used (through subclasses) by pcelsRule as well.

   3. pcimRepository containers may include entries of types unknown to
   [PCLS] implementations.

   When the choice exists, PCELS implementations SHOULD support the
   new schema and MAY also support the one defined by [PCLS]. For
   example, if PolicyRule support is required, an implementation SHOULD
   be able to read or read-write (as applicable) pcelsRule entires. The
   same implementation MAY be able to read or read-write pcimRule.


4.4 The Association of PolicyVariable and PolicyValues
    to PolicySimpleCondition and PolicySimpleAction

   A PolicySimpleCondition as well as a PolicySimpleAction includes a
   single PolicyValue and a single PolicyVariable. Each of them can be
   attached or referenced by a DN.

   The attachment helps create compact PolicyCondition and PolicyAction
   definitions that can be efficiently provisioned and retrieved from
   the repository. On the other hand, referenced PolicyVariables and
   PolicyValues instances can be reused in the construction of multiple
   policies and permit an administrative partitioning of the data and
   policy definitions.

4.5 The Aggregation of PolicyRules and PolicyGroups in PolicySets

   In [PCIM_EXT], the two aggregations PolicyGroupInPolicyGroup and
   PolicyRuleInPolicyGroup, are combined into a single aggregation
   PolicySetComponent. This aggregation and the capability of
   association between a policy and the ReusablePolicyContainer offer
   new possibilities of reusability. Furthermore, these aggregations
   introduce new semantics representing the execution of one PolicyRule
   within the scope of another PolicyRule.

   Since PolicySet is defined in [PCIM_EXT], it is mapped in this
   document to a new class pcelsPolicySet in order to provide an
   abstraction for a set of policy rules or groups. The aggregation
   class PolicySetComponent in [PCIM_EXT] is mapped to a multi-value
   attribute pcelsPolicySetList in the pcelsPolicySet class and the
   attribute pcelsPolicySetDN in the pcelsPolicySetAssociation. These
   attributes refer to the nested rules and groups.

   It is possible to store a rule/group nested in another rule/group
   in two ways. The first way is to define the nested rule/group as
   specific to the nesting rule/group. The second way is to define the
   nested rules/groups as reusable.

   First case: Specific nested sets (rules/groups).

   Figure 4. Policy Set with Specific Components

   The nesting pcelsPolicySet refers to instances of
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation using the attribute pcelsPolicySetList.
   These structural association classes are subordinated (DIT contained)
   to an instance of a non-abstract subclass of pcelsPolicySet and
   represent the association between the PolicySet and its nested rules/
   groups. The nested instances of auxiliary subclasses of
   pcelsPolicySet are attached to the association entries.

   Second case: Reusable nested sets (rules/groups).

   The nesting pcelsPolicySet refers to instances of
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation using the attribute pcelsPolicySetList.
   These structural association classes are subordinated (DIT contained)
   to an instance of a non-abstract subclass of pcelsPolicySet and
   represent the association between the PolicySet and its nested
   rules/groups. The reusable rules/groups are instantiated here as
   auxiliary classes and attached to pcimPolicyInstance entries in the
   reusable container. Another option is to use the structural
   subclasses for defining reusable rules/groups. The association
   classes belonging to a nesting policy set are reference the reusable
   rules/groups using the attribute pcelsPolicySetDN.

   A combination of both specific and reusable components is also
   allowed for the same policy set.


4.6 The Aggregation of actions/conditions in PolicyRules and
    CompoundActions/CompoundConditions

   [PCIM_EXT] defines two new classes that offer the designer the
   capability of creating more complex conditions and actions.
   CompoundPolicyCondition and CompoundPolicyAction classes are mapped
   in this document to pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass and
   pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass classes that are subclasses of
   pcimConditionAuxClass/pcimActionAuxClass. The compound conditions
   /actions defined in [PCIM_EXT] extend the capability of the rule to
   associate, group and evaluate conditions or execute actions. The
   conditions/actions are associated to compounds conditions/actions
   in the same way as they are associated to the rules.

   In this section it is explained how to store instances of these
   classes in an LDAP Directory. As a general rule, specific
   conditions/actions are subordinated (DIT contained) to the rule or
   compound condition/action that aggregates them and are attached
   to association class instances. Reusable conditions/actions, are
   subordinated to pcelsReusableContainer instances and attached to
   pcimPolicyInstance instances.

   The examples below illustrate the four possible cases combining
   specific/reusable compound/non-compound condition/action. The rule
   has two compound conditions, each one has two different conditions.
   The schemes can be extended in order to store actions.

   The examples below are based on and extend those illustrated in
   the section 4.4 of [PCLS].

   - First case: Specific compound condition/action with specific
   conditions/actions.

   Figure 6. Specific Compound Conditions with Specific Components

   Because the compound conditions/actions are specific to the Rule,
   They are auxiliary attachments to instances of the structural
   classes pcelsConditionAssociation or pcelsActionAssociation. These
   structural classes represent the association between the rule and
   the compound condition/action . The rule specific conditions
   /actions are therefore subordinated (DIT contained) to the rule
   entry.

   The conditions/actions are tied to the compound conditions/actions
   in the same way the compound conditions/actions are tied to rules.
   Association classes realize the association between the aggregating
   compound conditions/actions and the specific conditions/actions.

   - Second case: Rule specific compound conditions/actions with
   reusable conditions/actions.

   This case is similar to the first one. The conditions/actions are
   reusable so they are not attached to the association classes but they
   are attached to structural classes in the reusable container. The
   association classes tie the conditions/actions in located in a
   reusable container to their aggregators using DN references.

   -Third case: Reusable compound condition/action with specific
   conditions/actions.

   to the rule through a DN reference attribute in the association
   classes.

   Specific conditions/actions are attached to association entries and

   All the conditions/actions are reusable so they are stored in
   reusable containers. The figure above illustrates two different
   reusable policy containers but the number of containers in the
   system is decided based on administrative reasons. The conditions,
   actions, etc. may be stored in the same container or in different
   containers with no impact on the policy definition semantics.


5. Class Definitions

   The semantics for the policy information classes that are to be
   mapped directly from the information model to an LDAP representation
   are detailed in [PCIM_EXT]. Consequently, this document presents only
   a brief reference to those semantics. The focus here is on the
   mapping from the information model (which is independent of
   repository type and access protocol) to a form that can be accessed
   using LDAP. For various reasons including LDAP specific optimization,
   this mapping is not always 1:1. Some new classes and attributes
   needed to be created (that were not part of [PCIM] or [PCIM_EXT]) to
   implement the LDAP mapping. These new LDAP-only classes are fully
   defined in this document.

   The following notes apply to this section in its entirety.

   Note 1: The formal language for specifying the classes, attributes,
   and DIT structure and content rules is that defined in [LDAP_SYNTAX].
   In the following definitions, the class and attribute definitions
   follow [LDAP_SYNTAX] but they are line-wrapped to enhance human
   readability.

   Note 2: Even though not explicitly noted in the following class and
   attribute definitions, implementations may define DIT structure and
   content rules where applicable and supported by the underlying LDAP
   infrastructure. In such cases, the DIT structure rule considerations
   discussed in section 5 of [PCLS] must be applied to PCELS
   implementations as well. The reasons and details are presented in
   [X.501].

   Note 3: Wherever possible, an equality, a substring and an ordering
   matching rule are defined for a particular attribute. This provides
   additional implementation flexibility. However, in some cases, the
   LDAP matching semantics may not cover all the application needs. For
   instance, apparently different values of pcelsIPv4AddrList may be
   semantically equivalent. The equality matching rule,
   caseIgnoreMatch, associated to this attribute type is not suitable
   for detecting this equivalence. Implementers should not rely solely
   on LDAP syntaxes and matching rules for being consistent with this
   specification.

   Note 4: The following attribute definitions use only LDAP matching
   rules and syntax definitions from [LDAP_SYNTAX], [LDAP_SCHEMA] and
   [LDAP_MATCH]. The corresponding X.500 matching rules are defined in
   [X.520].

   Note 5: Some of the following attribute types MUST conform to
   additional constraints on various data types (E.g. the only valid
   values for pcelsDecisionStrategy are 1 and 2."). Just like
   the attribute semantics, the definition of the value structures,
   valid ranges, etc. is covered by [PCIM_EXT] for the corresponding
   properties while in this document such constraints are only briefly
   mentioned. In all cases, if a constraint is violated, the entry
   SHOULD be treated as invalid and the policy rules or groups that
   refer to it SHOULD be treated as being disabled, meaning that the
   execution of such policy rules or groups SHOULD be stopped.

   Note 6: Some of the object classes defined in this section can not
   or should not be directly instantiated either because they are
   defined as abstract or because they do not implement stand-alone
   semantics (e.g. pcelsValueAuxClass). With regards to instances that
   inherit from such classes, the text refers to "instances of
   <class_name>" when in fact the strictly correct expression would be
   "instances of non-abstract subclasses of <class_name>". The omission
   is intentional: it makes the text easier to read.


5.1 The Abstract Class pcelsPolicySet

   The pcelsPolicySet class represents a coherent set of policies with
   a common decision strategy and a common set of policy roles. It is
   mapped from the PolicySet class [PCIM_EXT]. The pcelsPolicySet
   class is an abstract object class and it is derived from the
   pcimPolicy class [PCLS].

   The pcelsPolicySetList attribute of a pcelsPolicySet instance
   references subordinated pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries.
   The aggregated pcelsPolicySet instances are either attached to the
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries as auxiliary object classes or
   referenced by the pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries using the
   pcelsPolicySetDN attribute.

   The pcelsPolicySet class is defined as follows:

         $ pcelsPolicySetList )
   )

   One of the attributes of the pcelsPolicySet class, pcimRoles is
   defined in the section 5.3 of [PCLS]. In the pcelsPolicySet class
   the pcimRole attribute preserves its syntax and semantics as defined
   by [PCLS] and [PCIM].

   The pcelsPolicySetName attribute type may be used as naming attribute
   for pcelsPolicySet entries. This attribute type is of syntax
   Directory String [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of
   caseIgnoreMatch, an ordering matching rule of caseIgnoreOrderingMatch
   and a substring matching rule of caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can only have a single value.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.1

     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15
     SINGLE-VALUE
   )

   The pcelsDecisionStrategy attribute type indicates the evaluation
   method for the policies aggregated in the policy set. It is mapped
   from the PolicySet.PolicyDecisionStrategy property [PCIM_EXT]. This
   attribute type is of syntax Integer [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an
   equality matching rule of integerMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX] and an ordering
   matching rule of integerOrderingMatch [LDAP_MATCH]. Attributes of
   this type can only have a single value. The only allowed values for
   attributes of this type are 1 (FirstMatching) and 2 (AllMatching).
   If this attribute is missing from a pcelsPolicySet instance,
   applications MUST assume a FirstMatching decision strategy for the
   policy set.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   The pcelsPolicySetList attribute type is used in the realization of
   the PolicySetComponent aggregation [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute type
   is of syntax DN [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of
   distinguishedNameMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can
   have multiple values. The only allowed values for pcelsPolicySetList
   attributes are DNs of pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries. In a
   pcelsPolicySet, the pcelsPolicySetList attribute represents the
   associations between this policy set and its components. No order is
   implied.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.3
     NAME 'pcelsPolicySetList'
     DESC 'Unordered set of DNs of pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries'
     EQUALITY distinguishedNameMatch
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12
   )

   Note: A pcelsPolicySet instance aggregates other pcelsPolicySet
   instances using pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries (defined in the
   next section). Applications can sort the components of a
   pcelsPolicySet using attributes of the pcelsPolicySetAssociation
   entries. However, implementations should not expect the LDAP data
   store to provide a useful ordering of the pcelsPolicySetList values
   in a pcelsPolicySet instance or to return sets of matching
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries in a meaningful order. Instead,
   applications SHOULD implement their own means for post-retrieval
   ordering of policy rules/groups based on
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation.pcelsPriority values.

5.2 The Structural Class pcelsPolicySetAssociation

   The pcelsPolicySetAssociation class is used in the aggregation of
   PolicySet instances [PCIM_EXT]. pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries
   are always subordinated to the aggregating entry. When subordinated
   to an instance of pcelsPolicySet, pcelsPolicySetAssociation
   realizes a PolicySetComponent aggregation [PCIM_EXT]. When
   subordinated to an instance of dlm1System [CIM_LDAP],
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation realizes a PolicySetInSystem association
   [PCIM_EXT].

   The pcelsPolicySetAssociation class is a structural object class and
   it is derived from the pcimPolicy class [PCLS].

   The aggregation of a reusable pcelsPolicySet instance is referenced
   via the pcelsPolicySetDN attribute. A non-reusable pcelsPolicySet
   instance is attached (as auxiliary subclass of pcelsPolicySet)
   directly to the pcelsPolicySetAssociation entry.

   When reading a pcelsPolicySetAssociation instance that has a
   pcelsPolicySet attached, the attribute pcelsPolicySetDN MUST
   be ignored. Applications SHOULD remove the pcelsPolicySetDN value
   from a pcelsPolicySetAssociation upon attachment of a pcelsPolicySet
   to the entry.

   The pcelsPolicySetAssociation class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.2
     NAME 'pcelsPolicySetAssociation'
     DESC 'Associates a policy set to an aggregating entry'
     SUP pcimPolicy
     STRUCTURAL
     MUST ( pcelsPriority )
     MAY ( pcelsPolicySetName
         $ pcelsPolicySetDN )
   )

   The pcelsPriority attribute type indicates the priority of a policy
   set component. This attribute type is of syntax Integer
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of integerMatch
   [LDAP_SYNTAX] and an ordering matching rule of integerOrderingMatch
   [LDAP_MATCH]. Attributes of this type can only have a single value.
   The only allowed values for attributes of this type are non-negative
   integers. Within the set of pcelsPolicySetAssociation entries
   directly subordinated to a pcelsPolicySet or a dlm1System [CIM_LDAP],
   the pcelsPriority values MUST be unique.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.27
     SINGLE-VALUE
   )

   The pcelsPolicySetDN attribute type is used in the aggregation of
   PolicySet instances [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute type is of syntax DN
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of
   distinguishedNameMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can
   only have a single values. The only allowed values for
   pcelsPolicySetDN attributes are DNs of pcelsPolicySet entries.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.5
     NAME 'pcelsPolicySetDN'
     DESC 'DN of a pcelsPolicySet entry'
     EQUALITY distinguishedNameMatch
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12
     SINGLE-VALUE
   )


5.3 The Three Policy Group Classes

   The pcelsGroup class is the base class for representing a policy
   group. It is mapped from the modified PolicyGroup class [PCIM_EXT].
   The pcelsGroup class is derived from the pcelsPolicySet class. To
   maximize flexibility, the pcelsGroup class is defined as abstract. An
   auxiliary subclass pcelsGroupAuxClass enables the attachment of a
   policy group to an existing entry, while a structural subclass
   pcelsGroupInstance permits the representation of a policy group as a
   standalone entry.

   The pcelsGroup class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.3
     NAME 'pcelsGroup'
     DESC 'Base class for representing a policy group'
     SUP pcelsPolicySet
     ABSTRACT
     MAY ( pcimGroupName )
   )

   The pcelsGroupAuxClass class is defined as follows:

     NAME 'pcelsGroupAuxClass'
     DESC 'Auxiliary class for representing a policy group'

   )

   The pcelsGroupInstance class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.5
     NAME 'pcelsGroupInstance'
     DESC 'Structural class for representing a policy group'
     SUP pcelsGroup
     STRUCTURAL
   )

   The pcimGroupName attribute type used by the pcelsGroup class is
   defined in the section 5.2 of [PCLS]. In the pcelsGroup object
   class, this attribute preserves its syntax and semantics as defined
   by [PCLS] and [PCIM].

   Note: PCELS implementations SHOULD support pcelsGroup and its two
   subclasses and MAY also support pcimGroup and its two subclasses
   [PCLS]. Applications that choose to support pcelsGroup and its two
   subclasses MUST use the aggregation mechanism provided by
   pcelsPolicySetAssociation for aggregating policy groups or policy
   rules in policy groups represented as instances of pcelsGroup.
   Applications that intend to be compatible with [PCIM_EXT] MUST
   support pcelsGroup and its two subclasses.


5.4 The Three Policy Rule Classes

   The pcelsRule class is the base class for representing a policy
   rule. It is mapped from the modified PolicyRule class [PCIM_EXT].
   The pcelsRule class is derived from the pcelsPolicySet class. To
   maximize flexibility, the pcelsRule class is defined as abstract. An
   auxiliary subclass pcelsRuleAuxClass enables the attachment of a
   policy rule to an existing entry, while a structural subclass
   pcelsRuleInstance permits the representation of a policy rule as a
   standalone entry.

   When reading a pcelsRule instance that has a pcimConditionAuxClass
   attached, from the policy rule perspective the attribute
   pcelsConditionList MUST be ignored. I.e. If present, the attribute
   must not be considered as an association between this policy rule
   and a policy condition. Such situations may occur, for example, when
   a pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass is attached to a pcelsRule
   instance.

   When reading a pcelsRule instance that has a pcimActionAuxClass
   attached, from the policy rule perspective the attribute
   pcelsActionList MUST be ignored. I.e. If present, the attribute
   must not be considered as an association between this policy rule
   and a policy action. Such situations may occur, for example, when
   a pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass is attached to a pcelsRule instance.

   The pcelsRule class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.6
     NAME 'pcelsRule'
     DESC 'Base class for representing a policy rule'
     SUP pcelsPolicySet
     ABSTRACT
     MAY ( pcimRuleName
         $ pcimRuleEnabled
         $ pcimRuleValidityPeriodList
         $ pcimRuleUsage
         $ pcimRuleMandatory
         $ pcelsConditionListType
         $ pcelsConditionList
         $ pcelsActionList
         $ pcelsSequencedActions
         $ pcelsExecutionStrategy )
   )

   The pcelsRuleAuxClass class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.7
     NAME 'pcelsRuleAuxClass'
     DESC 'Auxiliary class for representing a policy rule'
     SUP pcelsRule
     AUXILIARY
   )

   The pcelsRuleInstance class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.8
     NAME 'pcelsRuleInstance'
     DESC 'Structural class for representing a policy rule'
     SUP pcelsRule
     STRUCTURAL
   )

   Five of the attributes used by the pcelsRule class are defined
   in the section 5.3 of [PCLS]. These attributes are: pcimRuleName,
   pcimRuleEnabled, pcimRuleValidityPeriodList, pcimRuleUsage and
   pcimRuleMandatory. In the pcelsRule object class, these attributes
   preserve their syntax and semantics as defined by [PCLS] and [PCIM].

   The attributes pcimRuleConditionListType, pcimRuleConditionList,
   pcimRuleActionList and pcimRuleSequencedActions defined in [PCLS] are
   not used by pcelsRule. Instead, this class uses the new attributes
   pcelsConditionListType, pcelsConditionList, pcelsActionList and
   pcelsSequencedActions that are also used for similar purpose by
   either pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass or pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass.

   The pcelsConditionListType attribute type indicates whether the set
   of aggregated conditions is in disjunctive or in conjunctive normal
   form. It is mapped from the PolicyRule.ConditionListType property
   [PCIM] (identical to the CompoundPolicyCondition.ConditionListType
   property defined in [PCIM_EXT]). This attribute type is of syntax
   Integer [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of
   integerMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX] and an ordering matching rule of
   integerOrderingMatch [LDAP_MATCH]. Attributes of this type can only
   have a single value. The only allowed values for attributes of this
   type are 1 (Disjunctive) and 2 (Conjunctive). If this attribute is
   missing from a pcelsRule instance, applications MUST assume that the
   set of aggregated conditions is in disjunctive normal form.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.6

     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.27
     SINGLE-VALUE
   )

   The pcelsConditionList attribute type is used in the realization of
   the PolicyConditionStructure aggregation [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute
   type is of syntax DN [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule
   of distinguishedNameMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can
   have multiple values. The only allowed values for pcelsConditionList
   attributes are DNs of pcelsConditionAssociation entries. In a
   pcelsRule, the pcelsConditionList attribute represents the
   associations between this policy rule and its conditions. No order
   is implied.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   The pcelsActionList attribute type is used in the realization of
   the PolicyActionStructure aggregation [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute
   type is of syntax DN [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule

   have multiple values. The only allowed values for pcelsActionList
   attributes are DNs of pcelsActionAssociation entries. In a
   pcelsRule, the pcelsActionList attribute represents the
   associations between this policy rule and its actions. No order

   )

   The pcelsSequencedActions attribute type indicates whether the
   ordered execution of actions in an aggregate is Mandatory,
   Recommended or DontCare. It is mapped from the
   PolicyRule.SequencedActions property [PCIM] (identical to the
   CompoundPolicyAction.SequencedActions property defined in
   [PCIM_EXT]). This attribute type is of syntax Integer [LDAP_SYNTAX].
   It has an equality matching rule of integerMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX] and
   an ordering matching rule of integerOrderingMatch [LDAP_MATCH].
   Attributes of this type can only have a single value. The only
   allowed values for attributes of this type are 1 (Mandatory), 2
   (Recommended) and 3 (DontCare). If this attribute is missing from a

   The pcelsExecutionStrategy attribute type indicates whether the
   actions in an aggregate are to be executed until success, all
   (independent of their outcome) or until failure. It is mapped from
   the PolicyRule.ExecutionStrategy property [PCIM_EXT] (identical to
   the CompoundPolicyAction.ExecutionStrategy property). This attribute
   type is of syntax Integer [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching
   rule of integerMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX] and an ordering matching rule of

   have a single value. The only allowed values for attributes of this
   type are 1 (Do until success), 2 (Do all) and 3 (Do until failure).

   class. This mechanism is reused here in the context of the pcelsRule
   class. I.e. Rule validity periods for an instance of pcelsRule are
   realized using pcimRuleValidityAssociation entries subordinated to
   the rule.

   As result, the class pcimRuleValidityAssociation SHOULD be expected
   (and allowed) to have instances of pcelsRule as superior entries.

   Note 2: PCELS implementations SHOULD support pcelsRule and its two
   subclasses and MAY also support pcimRule and its two subclasses
   [PCLS]. Applications that choose to support pcelsRule and its two

   pcelsPolicySetAssociation for aggregating policy groups or policy
   rules in policy rules represented as instances of pcelsRule.
   Applications that intend to be compatible with [PCIM_EXT] MUST
   support pcelsRule and its two subclasses.

5.5 The Structural Class pcelsConditionAssociation

   The pcelsConditionAssociation class is used in the aggregation of
   PolicyCondition instances [PCIM]. pcelsConditionAssociation entries
   are always subordinated to the aggregating entry. When subordinated
   to an instance of pcelsRule, the pcelsConditionAssociation entry
   realizes the PolicyConditionInPolicyRule aggregation [PCIM_EXT].
   When subordinated to an instance of pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass,
   the pcelsConditionAssociation entry realizes the
   PolicyConditionInPolicyCondition aggregation [PCIM_EXT].

   The pcelsConditionAssociation class is a structural object class and
   it is derived from the pcimRuleConditionAssociation class [PCLS].

   The aggregation of a reusable instance of pcimConditionAuxClass is
   referenced via the pcimConditionDN attribute. A non-reusable
   instance of pcimConditionAuxClass is attached directly to the
   pcelsConditionAssociation entry.

   When reading a pcelsConditionAssociation entry that has a
   pcimConditionAuxClass instance attached, the attribute
   pcimConditionDN MUST be ignored. Applications SHOULD remove the
   pcimConditionDN value from a pcelsConditionAssociation upon
   attachment of a pcimConditionAuxClass to the entry.

   The pcelsConditionAssociation class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.9
     NAME 'pcelsConditionAssociation'
     DESC 'Associates a policy conditions to an aggregating entry'
     SUP pcimRuleConditionAssociation
     STRUCTURAL
   )

5.6 The Structural Class pcelsActionAssociation

   The pcelsActionAssociation class is used in the aggregation of
   PolicyAction instances [PCIM]. pcelsActionAssociation entries are
   always subordinated to the aggregating entry. When subordinated to a
   pcelsRule instance, the pcelsActionAssociation entry realizes the
   PolicyActionInPolicyRule aggregation [PCIM_EXT]. When subordinated
   to an instance of pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass, the
   pcelsActionAssociation entry realizes the PolicyActionInPolicyAction
   aggregation [PCIM_EXT].

   The pcelsActionAssociation class is a structural object class and
   it is derived from the pcimRuleActionAssociation class [PCLS].

   The aggregation of a reusable instance of pcimActionAuxClass is
   referenced via the pcimActionDN attribute. A non-reusable instance
   of pcimActionAuxClass is attached directly to the
   pcelsActionAssociation entry.

   When reading a pcelsActionAssociation entry that has a
   pcimActionAuxClass instance attached, the attribute pcimActionDN
   MUST be ignored. Applications SHOULD remove the pcimActionDN
   value from a pcelsActionAssociation upon attachment of a
   pcimActionAuxClass to the entry.

   The pcelsActionAssociation class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.10
     NAME 'pcelsActionAssociation'
     DESC 'Associates a policy conditions to an aggregating entry'
     SUP pcimRuleActionAssociation
     STRUCTURAL
   )

   This class extends the semantics of the pcimRuleActionAssociation
   object class without using any new attributes. All its attributes are
   inherited from the pcimRuleActionAssociation that is defined in
   section 5.6 of [PCLS].


5.7 The Auxiliary Class pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass.

   The pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass class implements a Value matching
   condition for a Variable. It is mapped from the
   SimplePolicyCondition class [PCIM_EXT]. The
   pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass class is an auxiliary object class and
   it is derived from the pcimConditionAuxClass class [PCLS].

INTERNET-DRAFT                  PCELS                        April 2004


   A reusable variable/value is associated to a
   pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass via the pcelsVariableDN/pcelsValueDN
   reference from the simple condition instance. A non-reusable
   variable/value is associated directly as auxiliary object class to
   the same entry as the pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass instance.

   When reading a pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass instance that has an
   instance of pcelsVariable attached, the attribute pcelsVariableDN
   MUST be ignored. Applications SHOULD remove the pcelsVariableDN
   value from a pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass instance upon attachment
   of a pcelsVariable instance to the same entry.

   When reading a pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass instance that has an
   instance of pcelsValue attached, the attribute pcelsValueDN MUST be
   ignored. Applications SHOULD remove the pcelsValueDN value from a
   pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass instance upon attachment of a
   pcelsValue instance to the same entry.

   The pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.11
     NAME 'pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass'
     DESC 'Value matching condition for a policy variable'
     SUP pcimConditionAuxClass
     AUXILIARY
     MAY ( pcelsVariableDN
         $ pcelsValueDN )
   )

   The pcelsVariableDN attribute type realizes the
   PolicyVariableInSimplePolicyCondition association [PCIM_EXT].
   This attribute type is of syntax DN [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an
   equality matching rule of distinguishedNameMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX].
   Attributes of this type can only have a single value. The only
   allowed values for pcelsVariableDN attributes are DNs of
   pcelsVariable entries. In a pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass, the
   pcelsVariableDN attribute represents the association between this
   simple policy condition and its policy variable.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.11
     NAME 'pcelsVariableDN'
     DESC 'DN of a pcelsVariable entry'
     EQUALITY distinguishedNameMatch
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12

   The pcelsValueDN attribute type realizes the
   PolicyValueInSimplePolicyCondition association [PCIM_EXT].
   This attribute type is of syntax DN [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an
   equality matching rule of distinguishedNameMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX].
   Attributes of this type can only have a single value. The only
   allowed values for pcelsValueDN attributes are DNs of
   pcelsValueAuxClass entries. In a pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass, the
   pcelsValueDN attribute represents the association between this
   simple policy condition and its policy value.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.12
     NAME 'pcelsValueDN'
     DESC 'DN of a pcelsValueAuxClass entry'
     EQUALITY distinguishedNameMatch
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12
     SINGLE-VALUE
   )

   Note: An instance of pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass and an instance of
   pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass MUST NOT be attached to a same
   entry. Because the two classes use the same mechanisms to
   associate Variables and Values, this restriction is necessary
   in order to avoid ambiguities.


5.8 The Auxiliary Class pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass.

   The pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass class represents a compound
   policy condition formed by the aggregation of other policy
   conditions. It is mapped from the CompoundPolicyCondition class
   [PCIM_EXT]. The pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass class is an auxiliary
   object class and it is derived from the pcimConditionAuxClass class
   [PCLS].

   The pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.12
     NAME 'pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass'
     DESC 'Boolean combination of simpler conditions'
     SUP pcimConditionAuxClass
     AUXILIARY
     MAY ( pcelsConditionListType
         $ pcelsConditionList )
   )

INTERNET-DRAFT                  PCELS                        April 2004


   If the pcelsConditionListType attribute is missing from a
   pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass instance, applications MUST assume
   that the set of aggregated conditions is in disjunctive normal form.

   In a pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass instance, the pcelsConditionList
   attribute represents the associations between this compound policy
   condition and the compounded conditions. No order is implied.

   These attribute types are defined in section 5.4.

   Like pcelsRule, instances of pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass use
   pcelsConditionList values and subordinated pcelsConditionAssociation
   entries to aggregate policy conditions.


5.9 The Auxiliary Class pcelsCompoundFilterConditionAuxClass.

   The pcelsCompoundFilterConditionAuxClass class represents a
   domain-level filter. It is mapped from the CompoundFilterCondition
   class [PCIM_EXT]. The pcelsCompoundFilterConditionAuxClass class is
   an auxiliary object class and it is derived from the
   pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass class.

   The pcelsCompoundFilterConditionAuxClass class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.13
     NAME 'pcelsCompoundFilterConditionAuxClass'
     DESC 'A compound condition with mirroring capabilities'
     SUP pcelsCompoundConditionAuxClass
     AUXILIARY
     MAY ( pcelsIsMirrored )
   )

   The pcelsIsMirrored attribute type indicates whether the traffic
   that mirrors the specified filter is to be treated as matching the
   filter. It is mapped from the CompoundFilterCondition.IsMirrored
   property [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute type is of syntax Boolean
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of booleanMatch
   [LDAP_MATCH]. Attributes of this type can only have a single value.
   If this attribute is missing from a
   pcelsCompoundFilterConditionAuxClass instance, applications MUST
   assume that the filter is not mirrored.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

5.10 The Auxiliary Class pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass.

   The pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass class implements the action of
   assigning a Value to a Variable. It is mapped from the
   SimplePolicyAction class [PCIM_EXT]. The
   pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass class is an auxiliary object class and it
   is derived from the pcimActionAuxClass class [PCLS].

   A reusable variable/value is associated to a
   pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass via the pcelsVariableDN/pcelsValueDN
   reference from the simple action instance. A non-reusable variable
   /value is associated directly as auxiliary object class to the
   same entry as the pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass instance.

   When reading a pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass instance that has an
   instance of pcelsVariable attached, the attribute pcelsVariableDN
   MUST be ignored. Applications SHOULD remove the pcelsVariableDN
   value from a pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass instance upon attachment
   of a pcelsVariable instance to the same entry.

   When reading a pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass instance that has an
   instance of pcelsValue attached, the attribute pcelsValueDN MUST be
   ignored. Applications SHOULD remove the pcelsValueDN value from a
   pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass instance upon attachment of a pcelsValue
   instance to the same entry.

   The pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.14
     NAME 'pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass'
     DESC 'Value assignment action for a policy variable'

   In a pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass, the pcelsVariableDN attribute
   represents the association between this simple policy action and
   its policy variable. It realizes the
   PolicyVariableInSimplePolicyAction association [PCIM_EXT].

   In a pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass, the pcelsValueDN attribute
   represents the association between this simple policy action and
   its policy value. It realizes the PolicyValueInSimplePolicyAction
   association [PCIM_EXT].

   These attributes are defined in section 5.7.

   A instance of pcelsSimpleActionAuxClass and an instance of
   pcelsSimpleConditionAuxClass MUST NOT be attached to a same entry.
   Because the two classes use the same mechanisms to associate
   Variables and Values, this restriction is necessary in order to
   avoid ambiguities.


5.11 The Auxiliary Class pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass.

   The pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass class represents a compound policy
   action formed by the aggregation of other policy actions. It is
   mapped from the CompoundPolicyCondition class [PCIM_EXT]. The
   pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass class is an auxiliary object class and
   it is derived from the pcimActionAuxClass class [PCLS].

   The pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.15
     NAME 'pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass'
     DESC 'Sequence of actions with specific execution strategy'
     SUP pcimActionAuxClass
     AUXILIARY
     MAY ( pcelsActionList
         $ pcelsSequencedActions
         $ pcelsExecutionStrategy )
   )

   In a pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass instance, the pcelsActionList
   attribute represents the associations between this policy rule and
   its actions. No order is implied.

   If the pcelsSequencedActions attribute is missing from a
   pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass instance, applications MUST assume that
   the ordered execution of actions in this compound policy action is
   not important (DontCare).

   If the pcelsExecutionStrategy attribute is missing from a
   pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass instance, applications MUST assume that
   all the actions are to be executed (Do all).

   These attribute types are defined in section 5.4.

   Like pcelsRule, instances of pcelsCompoundActionAuxClass use
   pcelsActionList values and subordinated pcelsActionAssociation
   entries to aggregate policy actions.


5.12 The Abstract Class pcelsVariable.

   The pcelsVariable class is mapped from the PolicyVariable class
   [PCIM_EXT]. The pcelsVariable is an abstract object class and it is
   derived directly from the 'top' object class [LDAP_SCHEMA].

   A pcelsVariable instance may be associated to a set of
   pcelsValueAuxClass instances that represent its expected values. The
   expected values for a variable may be indicated by:
      (1) pcelsExpectedValueList references to reusable instances of
          pcelsValueAuxClass or by
      (2) pcelsExpectedValueList references to subordinated
          non-reusable instances of pcelsValueAuxClass

   The pcelsVariable class is defined as follows:

         $ pcelsExpectedValueList )
   )

   The pcelsVariableName attribute type may be used as naming attribute
   for pcelsVariable entries. This attribute type is of syntax
   Directory String [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of
   caseIgnoreMatch, an ordering matching rule of caseIgnoreOrderingMatch
   and a substring matching rule of caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can only have a single value.

   The pcelsExpectedValueList attribute type realizes the
   ExpectedPolicyValuesForVariable association [PCIM_EXT]. This
   attribute type is of syntax DN [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality
   matching rule of distinguishedNameMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of
   this type can have multiple values. The only allowed values for
   pcelsExpectedValueList attributes are DNs of pcelsValueAuxClass
   entries. In a pcelsVariable, the pcelsExpectedValueList attribute
   represents the associations between this policy variable and its
   expected values. No order is implied.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.15
     NAME 'pcelsExpectedValueList'

5.14 The Auxiliary Class pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass

   The pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass class is mapped from the
   PolicyImplicitVariable class [PCIM_EXT]. The
   pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass is an auxiliary object class and it is
   derived from the pcelsVariable class.

   The pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass class does not represent actual
   variables: these are introduced by its subclasses.
   pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass introduces the semantics of being an
   implicitly defined policy variable and these semantics are inherited
   by all its subclasses. Among these semantics are those inherited
   from pcelsVariable that include the possibility of representing
   either rule-specific or reusable policy variables.

   In order to preserve the ability to represent rule-specific or
   reusable variables, all the subclasses of
   pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass MUST also be auxiliary classes.

   The pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass class is defined as follows:

     DESC 'Implicitly defined policy variable'
     SUP pcelsVariable
     AUXILIARY
     MAY ( pcelsExpectedValueTypes )
   )

   The pcelsExpectedValueTypes attribute type represents the set of
   policy value types that may be used with this policy variable. It is
   mapped from the PolicyImplicitVariable.ValueTypes property
   [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute type is of syntax Directory String
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of caseIgnoreMatch
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can have multiple values.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

5.15 The Subclasses of pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass

   The following classes are derived from the
   pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass class. They are mapped from the
   corresponding subclasses of the PolicyImplicitVariable class
   [PCIM_EXT]. All the classes defined below are auxiliary object
   classes.

   Each one of the classes defined in this section introduces specific
   restrictions for the values of the pcelsExpectedValueTypes
   attribute. If this attribute is missing applications MUST assume
   that all the allowed value types are expected for the policy
   variable.

   Some of these classes have additional restrictions on the actual
   values of the associated policy value instances (e.g. only integers
   in the range 0..65535 must be used with a SourcePort variable). The
   association between a pcelsImplicitVariableAuxClass instance and a
   pcelsValueAuxClass instance that contains values outside the valid
   range or set for that variable SHOULD be considered invalid. The
   entry that realizes such association SHOULD be treated as invalid
   and the policy rules or groups that refer to it SHOULD be treated as
   being disabled, meaning that the execution of such policy rules or
   groups SHOULD be stopped.

   In a pcelsSourcePortVariableAuxClass instance, the only allowed
   value for the pcelsExpectedValueTypes attribute is
   'pcelsIntegerValueAuxClass'. Additionally, only policy values
   that represent integers in the range 0..65535 (inclusive) SHOULD
   be used with pcelsSourcePortVariableAuxClass instances.

   The pcelsDestinationPortVariableAuxClass class is defined as
   follows:

5.16 The Auxiliary Class pcelsValueAuxClass.

   The pcelsValueAuxClass class is the base class for representing a
   policy value. It is mapped from the PolicyValue class [PCIM_EXT].
   The pcelsValueAuxClass is an auxiliary object class and it is
   derived directly from the 'top' object class [LDAP_SCHEMA].

   The pcelsValueAuxClass class does not represent actual values: these
   are introduced by its subclasses. pcelsValueAuxClass introduces the
   semantics of being a policy value and these semantics are inherited
   by all its subclasses. Among these semantics are those of
   representing either rule-specific or reusable policy values.

   In order to preserve the ability to represent rule-specific or
   reusable values, all the subclasses of pcelsValueAuxClass MUST also
   be auxiliary classes.

   The pcelsValueAuxClass class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.40
     NAME 'pcelsValueAuxClass'
     DESC 'Base class for representing a policy value'
     SUP top
     AUXILIARY
     MAY ( pcelsValueName )
   )

   The pcelsValueName attribute type may be used as naming attribute
   for pcelsValueAuxClass entries. This attribute type is of syntax
   Directory String [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of
   caseIgnoreMatch, an ordering matching rule of caseIgnoreOrderingMatch
   and a substring matching rule of caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can only have a single value.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.19
     NAME 'pcelsValueName'
     DESC 'The user-friendly name of a value'
     EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch

5.18 The Three Reusable Policy Container Classes

   The pcelsReusableContainer class represents a container of reusable
   policy elements. It is mapped from the ReusablePolicyContainer
   class [PCIM_EXT]. The pcelsReusableContainer class is derived from
   the pcimRepository class [PCLS]. To maximize flexibility, the
   pcelsReusableContainer class is defined as abstract. An auxiliary
   subclass pcelsReusableContainerAuxClass enables the attachment of a
   reusable policy container to an existing entry, while a structural
   subclass pcelsReusableContainerInstance permits the representation
   of a reusable policy container as a standalone entry.

   The elements contained in a reusable policy container are aggregated
   via subordination to a pcelsReusableContainer instance (DIT
   containment). A reusable policy container can include the elements
   of another reusable policy container by aggregating the container
   itself. This is realized by DIT containment when the policy
   containers are subordinated to one another, or by reference when
   the aggregating policy container references the aggregated one using
   the attribute pcelsReusableContainerList.

   The pcelsReusableContainer class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.48
     NAME 'pcelsReusableContainer'
     DESC 'Container for reusable policy information'
     SUP pcimRepository
     ABSTRACT

   [PCIM_EXT] defines several constraints for the IpHeadersFilter class
   and its properties. All these constraints (even those that, for
   brevity, are not reiterated in this document) apply to the
   pcelsIPHeadersFilter class and its attributes. A
   pcelsIPHeadersFilter entry that violates any of these constraints
   SHOULD be treated as invalid and the policy rules or groups
   associated to this entry SHOULD be treated as being disabled,
   meaning that the execution of such policy rules or groups SHOULD be
   stopped.

   The pcelsIPHdrVersion attribute type indicates the version of the IP
   addresses to be filtered on. It is mapped from the
   IpHeadersFilter.HdrIpVersion property [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute
   type is of syntax Integer [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching
   rule of integerMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX] and an ordering matching rule of
   integerOrderingMatch [LDAP_MATCH]. Attributes of this type can only
   have a single value. The only allowed values for attributes of this
   type are 4 and 6.

   In a pcelsIPHeadersFilter entry, the pcelsIPHdrVersion attribute type
   determines the size for the IP version dependent attribute values.
   These attributes are: pcelsIPHdrSourceAddress,
   pcelsIPHdrSourceAddressEndOfRange, pcelsIPHdrSourceMask,
   pcelsIPHdrDestAddress, pcelsIPHdrDestAddressEndOfRange and
   pcelsIPHdrDestMask. Their valid values are as follows:
      for IPv4: OctetStrings with a size of 4
      for IPv6: OctetStrings with a size of 16 or 20

   If the pcelsIPHdrVersion attribute is missing from a
   pcelsFilterEntryBase instance, then the filter does not consider IP
   version in selecting matching packets. In this case, IP version
   dependent attributes (listed above) must not be present in the
   filter entry.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.34
     NAME 'pcelsIPHdrVersion'
     DESC 'IP version'
     EQUALITY integerMatch

5.22 The Structural Class pcels8021Filter

   The pcels8021Filter class provides 802.1 attributes for performing
   filtering on 802.1 headers. It is mapped from the 8021Filter class
   [PCIM_EXT]. The pcels8021Filter class is a structural object class
   and it is derived from the pcelsFilterEntryBase class.

   The pcels8021Filter class is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.1.54
     NAME ' pcels8021Filter'
     DESC '802.1 header filter'
     SUP pcelsFilterEntryBase
     STRUCTURAL

         $ pcels8021HdrProtocolID
         $ pcels8021HdrPriority
         $ pcels8021HdrVLANID )
   )

   Applications MUST assume 'all values' for optional (MAY) attributes
   not present in a pcels8021Filter entry.

   [PCIM_EXT] defines several constraints for the 8021Filter class
   and its properties. All these constraints (even those that, for
   brevity, are not reiterated in this document) apply to the
   pcels8021Filter class and its attributes. A pcels8021Filter entry
   that violates any of these constraints SHOULD be treated as invalid
   and the policy rules or groups associated to this entry SHOULD be
   treated as being disabled, meaning that the execution of such policy
   rules or groups SHOULD be stopped.

   The pcels8021HdrSourceMACAddress attribute type represents a source
   MAC address. It is mapped from the 8021Filter.8021HdrSrcMACAddr
   property [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute type is of syntax OctetString
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of octetStringMatch
   [LDAP_SCHEMA] and an ordering matching rule of
   octetStringOrderingMatch [LDAP_MATCH]. Attributes of this type can
   only have a single value. The only allowed values for attributes of
   this type are octet strings with a size of 6.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   The pcelsFilterListName attribute type may be used as naming
   attribute for pcelsFilterListAuxClass entries. This attribute type
   is of syntax Directory String [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality
   matching rule of caseIgnoreMatch, an ordering matching rule of
   caseIgnoreOrderingMatch and a substring matching rule of
   caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can

   property [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute type is of syntax Integer
   [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of integerMatch
   [LDAP_SYNTAX] and an ordering matching rule of integerOrderingMatch
   [LDAP_MATCH]. Attributes of this type can only have a single value.
   The only allowed values for attributes of this type are 0
   (NotApplicable), 1 (Input), 2 (Output), 3 (Both) and 4 (Mirrored).
   If this attribute is missing from a pcelsFilterListAuxClass
   instance, applications MUST assume that a direction is not
   applicable.

   The pcelsFilterEntryList attribute type realizes the
   EntriesInFilterList aggregation [PCIM_EXT]. This attribute type
   is of syntax DN [LDAP_SYNTAX]. It has an equality matching rule of
   distinguishedNameMatch [LDAP_SYNTAX]. Attributes of this type can
   have multiple values. The only allowed values for
   pcelsFilterEntryList attributes are DNs of pcelsFilterEntryBase
   entries. In a pcelsFilterListAuxClass, the pcelsFilterEntryList
   attribute represents the associations between this filter collection
   and its components. No order is implied.

   This attribute type is defined as follows:

   ( IANA-ASSIGNED-OID.2.57
     NAME 'pcelsFilterEntryList'

     EQUALITY distinguishedNameMatch
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12
   )

   The EntrySequence property of the aggregation EntriesInFilterList
   is restricted to a single value ('0') [PCIM_EXT]. This makes it
   redundant and, therefore, its mapping to an LDAP schema element
   is unnecessary.


5.24 The Auxiliary Class pcelsVendorVariableAuxClass.

   The pcelsVendorVariableAuxClass class provides a general extension
   mechanism for representing policy variables that have not been
   specifically modeled. Instead, its two properties are used to define
   the content and format of the variable, as explained below. This
   class is intended for vendor-specific extensions that are not
   amenable to using pcelsVariable; standardized extensions SHOULD NOT
