Subject: OASIS TC call for participation: XACML

A new OASIS technical committee is being formed. The eXtensible Access
Control Markup Language (XACML) Committee has been proposed by Simon
Blackwell, PSoom; Ken Yagen, CrossLogix; Gilbert Pilz, Jamcracker;
Michiharu Kudoh, IBM; Krishna Sankar, Cisco; Ernesto Damiani, individual
member; Bill Parducci, individual member; Frank Chum, PSoom; Joe Pato, HP;
Fred Moses, EntitleNet; and Meg Kistin Anzalone, EntitleNet.

The request for a new TC meets the requirements of the OASIS TC process, and
is appended to this email.

To become a member of this new TC you must 1) be an employee of an OASIS
member organization or an Individual member of OASIS, 2) notify the
committee chair, Simon Blackwell (sblackwell@psoom.com), of your intent to
participate at least 15 days prior to the first meeting, and 3) participate
in the first meeting on 21 May, 2001. You should also subscribe to the TC's
discussion list. (For the procedure for joining after the first meeting see
the TC process at http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process.shtml.)

The mail list xacml@lists.oasis-open.org is for committee
discussions. TC members as well as any other interested OASIS members should
subscribe to the list. Do this by sending a message to
xacml-request@lists.oasis-open.org with the word "subscribe" as
the body of the message. (Note that subscribing to the mail list does not
make you a member of the TC; to become a member you must contact the TC
chair as described in the preceeding paragraph.)

Name of TC: eXtensible Access Control Markup Language - XACML

Statement of purpose: The purpose of the XACML TC is to define a core schema
and corresponding namespace for the expression of authorization policies in
XML against objects that are themselves identified in XML. The schema will
be capable of representing the functionality of most policy representation
mechanisms available at the time of adoption. It is also intended that the
schema be extensible in order to address that functionality not included,
custom application requirements, or features not yet envisioned. Issues to
be addressed include, but are not limited to: fine grained control, the
nature of the requestor, the protocol over which the request is made,
content introspection, the types of activities authorized.

List of deliverables (timing is given as days from first meeting):
- statement of scope (45 days),
- glossary (v1.0 45 days),
- bibliography (v1.0 45 days),
- use cases (v1.0 90 days),
- detailed requirements (v1.0 120 days)
- proposed standard (v1.0 180 days)
- model examples for "native" and non-native XML targets of control (v1.0
180 days)
- reference implementations (v1.0 270 days)

Related Work: To ensure work is not duplicated and standards adoption is as
simple as possible, XACML shall adopt as baseline documents the work
products of the  Security Services TC including but not limited to a Domain
Model and Glossary. Furthermore, Use Cases and Requirements documents will
share content that is common through normative references. The XACML TC
shall keep its work consistent with the work of the Security Services TC by
requesting enhancements to,
modifications of, and cross-references from Security Services TC documents
through a formal liaison with the Security Services TC. This liaison will
include the regular sharing of deliverables and status reports during
teleconferences or at face-to-face meetings.

Language in which the TC will conduct business: English

Date, time and place of first meeting: Via teleconference at 8AM PST May

Proposed meeting schedule for first year: Teleconference calls will be held
by the full TC on the second Monday of each month at 8AM PST, except when a
face-to-face meeting is scheduled during the same week. A tentative date for
a face-to-face meeting is XML World Sep 30th-Oct 3rd, San Jose, CA.
