Yes - really OCCI will not define authorization or anything AAA/IdM but merely expose a way, by extension, to point/discover to such systems at most.

Authorization will likely not make it to the first version of OCCI.  
Authentication will be available though. You are however free to implement  
"users" as a sub-type of Resource and then use ResourceLink to associate  
users with resources.
