This cover note contains information re: the XACML 2.0 RSA Interop
event that was held at the 2008 RSA Conference in San Francisco,
CA from April 7-10, 2008. It also describes the zip file below.

The XACML 2.0 RSA Conference 2008 Interop event:

At RSA 2008, nine members of the OASIS open standards
consortium, in cooperation with the Health Information
Technologies Standards Panel (HITSP), demonstrated
interoperability of the eXtensible Access Control Markup
Language (XACML) version 2.0.

Simulating a real world scenario provided by the

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA),

the demo showed how XACML ensures successful authorization
decision requests and the exchange of authorization policies.
