Object/LM fully conforms to the OMG's CORBA licensing and metering specification. It supports Access Control to manage the authorized usage of objects (including enforcement of licensing policies on software components), and Usage Metering to measure the utilization of objects (typically for usage billing purposes such as pay-per-view). The standard CORBA IDL interface is implemented along with additional administration and metering interfaces. Object/LM utilizes the Internet standard IIOP communication protocol, and includes a plug-in security and authentication module to prevent tampering with the usage control mechanism.
