Subject: Re: [xacml] Policy Distribtion

Hi Richard, everyone,

In Ray's initial REST draft, he included a standardized PAP API. I believe this was axed later. I think we should revisit that effort.

As I mentioned on yesterday's TC call, it's starting to be become apparent that large companies and multi-agency government entities will need a standard way to distribute XACML policies (e.g. sync updates from a centralized policy repository point to PDPs). The XACML 3.0 specification, section 2.9 Policy distribution, leaves policy distribution implementation to XACML product companies. Understandably, these implementations may be fine tuned to work well with one company's XACML products, but may not with another company's XACML products. Additionally, it cannot be guaranteed that each org in a large company or all government agencies will use the same company's XACML products. I believe that without a standard approach to distribute, sync, etc, XACML policies it may become a barrier to XACML adoption.


Hal Lockhart stated, on the TC call, that he has started work on trying to standardize this in the past and has taken the action to revive this effort. I would like to help with this and I encourage other to participate as well.


Hal, Is there a link on the Wiki on your past policy distribution work?
