Subject: [Fwd: new OASIS discussion list : XACML]

>Subject: new OASIS discussion list : XACML
>Date: Wed, 21 Feb 2001 14:12:40 -0500
>From: Karl Best <karl.best@oasis-open.org>
>To: members@lists.oasis-open.org,
>Upon request by three eligible participants, I have created an OASIS
>Discussion List whose purpose is to discuss the possible creation of an
>OASIS Technical Committee. This list will exist for no longer than 90 days,
>after which time a TC may be formed or not.
>The scope of discussion is eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML,
>an intermin moniker), which addresses security related specifications
>orthogonal to the efforts of the existing Security Services OASIS TC.
>Whereas the Security Services TC exists to define an XML framework for
>exchanging authentication and authorization information, XACML is concerned
>with the representation of access control policies as XML and the
>application of these policies to XML documents. The people requesting the
>creation of this discussion list have discussed this effort with the
>existing Security Services TC, and that TC agreed that this work is best
>carried out as a separate, though coordinated, effort rather than as a part
>of the Security Services TC.
>Current public examples of the types of issues the group will address are
>illustrated by http://www9.org/w9cdrom/419/419.html and
>The persons requesting the creation of this list are:
>Ernesto Damiani, edamiani@crema.unimi.it (Individual member)
>Pierangela Samarati, samarati@dsi.unimi.it  (Individual member)
>Simon Y. Blackwell, sblackwell@psoom.com (Psoom)
>Frank Chum, fchum@psoom.com (Psoom)
>Fred Moses, fmoses@entitlenet.com (EntitleNet)
>The discussion leader will be Ernesto Damiani.
>In order to participate in this discussion you should subscribe to the
>discussion list by sending a message to
>xacml-discuss-request@lists.oasis-open.org with the word "subscribe" as the
>body of the message. If you do not wish to subscribe, but wish to view the
