Subject: RE: [xacml-users] RV: XACML question

Hi Seth, thank you for answering my question.
As you said, I'm trying to send XACML request/response via SOAP. At the specification theres only a schema about that. So, I was wondering if someone tried to do that.
On the other hand, I was taking a look at the SAML specification, and I think that it may solve my problem. I would appreciate if someone can share their experience using SAML in a SOAP environment.
Thank you
Ariel Neisen

Could you provide a little more detail about how you're trying to use
XACML in a web services environment? For instance, when you talk about
binding, are you trying to send an XACML Request/Response in SOAP, are
you trying to pass messgaes that include XACML policy, or are you
trying to use XACML to let the service make authorization decisions?

This profile effectively defines a subset of XACML that can be used for
negotiation with web services. It really was an experiement, and to my
knowledge no one has implemented the SOAP bindings described in the
second half of that spec. You're probably better off looking at the
SAML profile included with the 2.0 specification, which is now a
standard and may have what you're looking for.
