NWG/RFC 408 Buzz Owen (SAAC-TIP) NIC #12390 Jon Postel (UCLA-NMC)

                                                 25 October 1972
                              NETBANK

The following idea for a protocol (or service) is offered as an aid to network use for new users:

 a single billing and account creation and validation system,
 so that a manager of a "goal oriented project" could:
    authorize a set of user's ids to gain access to and utilize
    resources at the entire or a specified subset of the server
    hosts.
    create a set of accounts which the users will expend, and
    which will be used as the breakdown for a single bill to be
    presented to the project manager.
 the idea is that the project manager would be required to go
 through the initialization process of introducing himself,
 verifying the existence of funding, etc. only once, and,
 the idea would also encourage server hosts to implement
 systems for which usage might be projected to start at low
 levels and grow, by allowing funded hacking by project members
 in a controlled manner.
 this would require an option at login for the prospective user
 to indicate the server should check the "netbank" facility at
 the system currently hosting it.
