Content-based Publish/Subscribe (CPS) is a powerful paradigm providing loosely-coupled, event-driven messaging services. Although the general CPS model is well-known, many features remain implementation specific because of different application requirements. Many of these requirements can be captured in policies that separate service semantics from system mechanisms, but no such policy framework currently exists in the CPS context. In this paper, we propose a novel policy model and framework
more » ... CPS systems that benefits from the scalability and expressiveness of existing CPS matching algorithms. In particular, we provide a reference implementation and several evaluation scenarios that demonstrate how our approach easily and dynamically enables features such as notification semantics, meta-events, security zoning, and CPS firewalls.
