As I generate a Registration section for the Cloud Imaging Model, I would
like to verify my understanding of the decisions made at Monday's meeting.
1. The Device Owner, operating through the Cloud Imaging Device Proxy that
provides the cloud interface for the device, registers the device and the
device services he wishes to make available to the Cloud Imaging System. He
may desire to block access to specific Device elements and Service elements.
In response to information provided by the Device owner to the Proxy:
a. The proxy provides Device registration information with an initial
Update System Elements message to the Cloud System Control Service. This
message provides information on all System Elements of the Device that are
to be made known to the Cloud Imaging System. It corresponds to a response
to a current Get System Elements message with all elements identified.
b. The Proxy identifies the Device Services that are to be accessible to
the Cloud Imaging System by sending an Identify Services message to the
Cloud System Control Service. This corresponds to a response to a current
List Services operation.
c. The proxy identifies the elements of each Device Imaging Service that
are to be made available to the corresponding Cloud Imaging Service by
sending an initial Update Service Elements to an Owner-identified
corresponding imaging service of the target Cloud Imaging System. This
corresponds to a response to a current Get Service Elements operation.
2. Once Device and Service registrations are complete, the Proxy will
maintain contact with the Cloud System Control Service and the registered
Imaging services, updating System and Service Elements and checking Cloud
Imaging Services for jobs.
1. It was decided that:
a. Devices and Service are registered, not subunits
b. Device Services can only be registered with corresponding Cloud Imaging
c. Therefore: a Device subunit cannot be made accessible to a Cloud Imaging
Service unless that subunit is configured as part of a Device Imaging
Service that is registered with the Cloud Imaging Service. For example, a
Cloud FaxIn Service can not use a marking engine in a Print Device unless
that marking engine is also configured as part of a FaxIn service that is
registered with the Cloud FaxIn Service. (This seems an unfortunate
limitation to me.)
2. It was agreed that the Owner will want to place restrictions on:
a. Who can use the device, with respect to one or more of the following:
i. User ID, possibly including results of
ii. Geographical or network typological origin of
iii. Payment or credit
iv. Any one of various other conditions
b. What services a user can use
c. When each user can use what services (e.g., Print and Hardcopy Fax and
Email only during working hours; FaxIn, EmailIn to storage all the time)
d. Degree of use (e.g., max number of copies)for each particular user and
e. Probably other conditions
The owner will communicate with the Cloud Imaging System with an "access
list" to identify these User rights and restrictions. This process is out of
scope for the Cloud Imaging Model.
I would appreciate confirmation or correction of this understanding.
