The DotGNU webservice server requires that for each webservice and
each set of data that it acts on, there is an "owner of the data"
who has the right to download the entire set of data together with
the program which implements the webservice.  Program which have
been downloaded in this way can be executed in any DotGNU Secure
Execution Environment on a desktop computer or on a DotGNU
webservices server.

How can this be implemented? I have thought of a way to put this in the webservice<->seedaemons comm, as a pre-connection identification (owner-of-the-data|visitor (!owner)|guest (no-auth)), thought it's kind of messy without a state of connectedness (that Goldwater doesn't provide). DG-Box can solve some of the auxiliary-file problems, but probably not the location of the user's data. So what is the technical solution?

I would suppose it would have something to do with limiting what data the service can access for each virtual identity. Ugh. But I would like to know about the technical background for this. Though you probably figured it all out in July 2001.

Will it be necessary to return to the "DotGNU API" model?

OT: how about some sort of serialization for the user's data? It can be set to go to file, db, whatever, thus putting data under control of "DotGNU persistent-data API". Sorry for ranting here, but that's what you get with random (point) movements and just-in-time questions :)

BTW, there is no owner-of-the-data in Network SEE arch 2.1.

Imagine: no more used book stores; no more lending a book to your
friend; no more borrowing one from the public library--no more "leaks"
that might give someone a chance to read without paying. (And judging
from the ads for Microsoft Reader, no more anonymous purchasing of
books either.) This is the world publishers have in mind for us.
