Subject: Re: [xacml] Reviewed os 1.0 Draft 3


Thank you for taking time to Satoshi's question. I also agree with you.

For the conformance test cases, I think we can create a set of test cases
even for the standard POLICY combining algorithms. It covers the cases
where a set of obligations are deterministically resolved. Although it does
not cover all the cases of the every combination of rule, policy, and
policy set, it would be useful for readers how obligations are combined
over policy hierarchies. I think we can provide a set of test cases for

Yes, I think it would be difficult.  Anyone else thought about this?
