Subject: Re: XACML profile for SPKI?
James, There are no plans to do a profile for SPKI. XACML doesn't deal with authentication: that is handled by layers such as SAML on which XACML is built. So maybe SAML is where such a profile would be appropriate, but I have heard no customer demand for SPKI-based systems.
