Subject: RE: Information on GeoXACML
Dear EM TC -
During the teleconference today I mentioned a standards activity in the OGC we call GeoXACML. A draft of this candidate standard can be found at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/41 . From the document:
The OpenGIS Geospatial eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (GeoXACML) Draft Implementation Specification (OGC Document 07-026) defines a geo-specific extension to the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) OASIS standard. "Access control systems" enable management of access to information only until it is obtained by the user and stored locally, as opposed to "rights management systems" that remain in force regardless of where the content of the original resource is located or reproduced.
The GeoXACML committee is finalizing a draft Version 1 for OGC member approval. This version incorporates all comments from the mandatory 30 day public comment period.
Reason for sharing is that there may be some use for this new standard in the work of this TC as well as projects being pursued by TC Committee members.
