Subject: OASIS XACML InterOp Demo, RSA 2008, San Francisco, California, USA, April 7-11 2008

OASIS XACML InterOp Demo, RSA Conference 2008, San Francisco, California,
USA, April 7-11 2008, Booths 132-136

The eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) 2.0 OASIS Standard has
emerged as a front runner in solving complex access control problems in the
enterprise. Unlike the approach taken by proprietary access control lists
(ACL), XACML is an industry accepted standard that provides a well defined
structure to create rules and policy sets to make complex authorization
decisions.  Enterprise practitioners have wished for greater
interoperability between products that support the XACML OASIS Standard.

At the RSA Conference 2008 in San Francisco, April 7-11, nine organizations
will come together to demonstrate interoperability of the eXtensible Access
Control Markup Language (XACML) 2.0 OASIS Standard. Simulating a real world
scenario provided by the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs; the demo will
show how XACML ensures successful authorization decision requests and the
exchange of authorization policies. Participants include:

.     Axiomatics
.     BEA Systems
.     IBM
.     Oracle
.     Red Hat
.     Cisco
.     Sun Microsystems
.     U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

The Interoperability Demonstration will utilize the requirements drawn in
the Healthcare industry based on work done at the U.S. Department of
Veterans Affairs, HL7, ASTM and ANSI.  The requirements include Role-Based
Access Control (RBAC), Privacy Protections, Structured and Functional Roles,
Consent Codes, Emergency Overrides and Filtering of Sensitive Data. The
demonstration will highlight how XACML Obligations can provide additional
capabilities in the policy decision making process, while taking the health
care scenarios as example. Technical details of the demonstration, including
Interoperability Configuration, Policy Decision Request and Policy
Interoperability, Roles and Privileges Modeling, Usage of XACML Obligations
and SAML Identity Providers will be highlighted.

The demonstration will occur in Booths 132-136 beginning April 7, 2008
during Expo hours. There will be an opportunity for the RSA 2008 attendees
to interact with the participating technologists.
