Subject: PDP REST Interface - proposal

Hi all,

Following the call yesterday, I would like to kick start some discussions around the possibility around designing a standard REST interface for a PDP. The idea would be to have a PEP-PDP interaction using REST.

Original idea:
Develop a lightweight, simple PEP capable of sending authorization requests to an authorization service (the PDP). The simpler the PEP, the likelier it will be adopted by a wider crowd of developers.

Possible REST interfaces:
2 possible methods: GET and POST

What are your thoughts? Do you think any standardization effort / profile definition effort should be driven by a developer community willing to use authorization and which would want to sacrifice the richness of XACML for the sake of simplicity?
