Minutes from 30 September meeting voted upon: Moved: Anne Second: Rebekah Corrections: none Approved unanimously. II. W3C policy conference update - Anne The conference was composed of various factions, from those interested in simple "ANDs & ORs" to those looking for complex inference mechanisms. There was significant interest in Obligations and how they are enforced. Anne presented WSPL, focusing on comparing individual assertions allowing a standard "intersection engine" to make decisions. "Features & Properties" in WSDL received a lot of attention. Position votes were inconclusive on W3C direction. III. New mail list XACML-users has been created (at the behest of Anne) and it is setup to provide a forum for users interested int eh expression of XACML policy. The list is actively being used now. IV XACML v2.0 Status The TC has moved all compiled docs to public review. There have been no comments on the comments list to date. Anne reviewed SAML profile with Eve Mahler and found an inconsistency (a feature of SAML that no longer exists in SAML 2.0). Anne will post her finding to the list. V. General Business TC will be looking for attestations soon. Looking for interested parties to work on compliance tests (extending from 1.0) Those interested in working on the open source implementation of XACML contact Seth. Frank is continuing his work with delegation; Hal asked for review of direction if possible. Frank offered to presetn something within a few weeks. Tim wanted to draw attention to Use Case he posted re:distributing policy. Rebekah will be posting a list of questions regarding this. Tim identified a team at MIT that is working on techniques to identify conflicts in policies and is looking for a policy corpora to use for research. Seth offered to follow up on this. Rebekah asked if there is a concrete position with respect to WS Policy? Hal reviewed the history of this issue, concluding that WS Policy is solving a problem that is out of the current XACML scope. Tim noted that WS Policy is in a state of flux, however he suggests that XACML can be used with WS Policy by incorporating it as the authorization component. Frank believes that WS Policy seems to be an "envelope". Hal pointed out that the term "policy" has come to mean many things in WS Policy and its meaning is being worked through now in the WS Policy TC. Meeting adjourned.
