XACML v3.0 Related and Nested Entities Profile v1.0 approved as a Committee Specification
OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of a new Committee Specification by the members of the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) TC :
XACML v3.0 Related and Nested Entities Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification 02
16 February 2021
It is not unusual for access control policy to be dependent on attributes that are not naturally properties of the access subject or resource, but rather are properties of entities that are related to the access subject or resource. This profile defines the means to reference such attributes from within XACML policies for processing by a policy decision point.
This Committee Specification is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.
The prose specifications and related files are available here:
