Protecting data in buffer with an SA

IBM is looking at what would be required to protect a data in buffer with 
an SA.	There is an ESP-SCSI defined for parameter in data but no method 
for selecting which SA to use to protect it.  How does the application 
client tell the device server which SA to use?	Since there are no SAI 
fields in the CDB's for the commands that request the data we are looking 
to protect, we don't see how to do this.
Has anybody thought about this yet?
