An activity of the WISE SCI working group

We have had a lot of feedback that the Policy Development Kit (which came from the AARC project) is good but doesn't necessarily fit use cases. People have to make significant modifications. We would like to pull in the feedback from these first-hand implementation experiences and produce an improved set of templated policies. 

In particular, some communities are looking for something very easy to pick up and define requirements on participating services (e.g. CS3MESH). Our first objective is to update the Security Operations Policy (and possibly the top level policy that ties participants together).
