Subject: Re: REST Profile

Hi Dave,

Good to hear from you.

Your assumption is correct. The REST profile doesn't define the format of the request but rather the way you send a request / response.

The RFC Remon (in CC) wrote specifies how the version of XACML can be indicated (http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-sinnema-xacml-media-type-00.txt).

We're also working on a JSON representation of XACML.

Hi David et al.

The Rest profile says that is supports versions 3.0 and earlier. However I can find no text in the profile that says how earlier versions of XACML are supported. I assume that when the POST message is sent to the PDP, it will be set to something like this:

POST /authorization/pdp HTTP/1.0
Host: www.example.com
Accept: application/xacml+xml; version=2.0
Content-Type: application/xacml+xml; version=2.0

and the request context will then follow the XACMLv2 schema.

However, the profile itself is silent on this issue.
