SATMP(7)							      SATMP(7)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     satmp - Security Attribute	Token Mapping Protocol (SATMP)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     To	improve	performance, TSIX attributes in	the SAMP header	are
     represented by 32 bit tokens. The SATMP  protocol is used to convert
     security attributes in the	format native to the local system into tokens
     useful to the destination system. The SATMP consists of three types of
     exchanges,	an initialization handshake, a token mapping exchange, and a
     token resolution exchange.	 A Domain of Translation (DOT) identifies a
     set of translation	tables a system	uses when converting security
     attributes	between	its native format and the network representation
     understood	in that	domain.

     During the	SATMP handshake, the two systems determine which predefined
     Domain of Translation (DOT) they have in common for each required
     attribute.	 The remote host (rhosts) database specifies which attributes
     are required of each host,	and what defaults may be substituted if	the
     remote host can't supply a	particular attribute.  The remote host
     database also allows the system to	distinguish which hosts	it needs to
     specify TSIX to, which need only IP Options, and which are	unlabeled, and
     what level	of trust to assign each.  If the two hosts trying to
     communicate can not agree on a common Domain of Translation (DOT) for
     each attribute or supply appropriate defaults (local policy), access is
     not permitted.
