Subject: Re: [xacml] Followup RBAC/XACML meeting
Date: Tue, 03 Jun 2003 10:36:37 -0400

I would like to invite Tim Bouma, a developer from the Canadian RCMP to 
join this conference call if that's OK.  They are working on a 
nationwide system that will incorporate RBAC and they have some 
well-studied ideas for things they would like to do beyond what's in our 
core standard.  Tim has expressed an interest in working with XACML on this.

Also, could you please send the short note below to your mailing list? 
 I know that the member companies have already been invited to comment 
on the standard by ANSI, but your group has a specific interest so they 
may be able to contribute to their organizations' input to ANSI.

Note regarding proposed RBAC standard:

ANSI/INCITS is soliciting comments on the proposed standard for role 
based access control.  NIST believes that establishing this core 
standard for RBAC components is a necessary first step to provide a 
basis for additional work in XACML and other areas.  In addition, 
government agencies have already begun citing the proposed standard in 
procurements totaling several hundred million dollars, so a core 
standard is needed soon.  Please send comments to Barbara Bennett 
bbennett@ntic.org, with a copy to the ANSI office at  psa@ansi.org.  If 
you favor the adoption of the proposed standard, just a sentence stating 
this is sufficient, although extended comments are welcome.  Closing 
date for comments is June 17, 2003.  The draft standard is available at
