The eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) TC members  have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:
Committee Specification Draft 04 / Public Review Draft 02
17 April 2014
With these releases we are testing a convenience option for submitting comments to the Technical Committee. Please see the details under ‘Public Review Period’ below.
This Committee Specification Draft describes a profile of XACML for expressing privacy policies.
XACML is expected to address fine grained control of authorized activities, the effect of characteristics of the access requestor, the protocol over which the request is made, authorization based on classes of activities, and content introspection (i.e. authorization based on both the requestor and potentially attribute values within the target where the values of the attributes may not be known to the policy writer). XACML is also expected to suggest a policy authorization model to guide implementers of the authorization mechanism.
Public Review Period:
The public review starts 23 May 2014 at 00:00 GMT and ends 6 June 2014 at 23:59 GMT. The specification was previously submitted for public review . This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF file .
This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
With this public review, we are testing a new convenience feature for sending comments to the Technical Committee. The file:
contains the HTML version of the draft with a “[comment?]” link next to each section heading. Clicking on this link will launch your email application and begin a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
with the specific section number and title in the subject line. (For example, “Public review comment for xacml-3.0-privacy-v1.0-csprd02: 1.1 References”) Simply enter your comment and click send.
Note that the Table of Contents doesn’t work in this version and other internal document links may not work in these files. That is one of the items we need fix before making this capability more broadly available. Please feel free to let us know if you find this feature helpful. We plan to refine it and make it a part of our normal public review process.
