15-day Public Review for Cloud Authorization Use Cases v1.0 - ends June 23rd
The OASIS Cloud Authorization (CloudAuthZ) TC members  have produced an updated Committee Note Draft (CND) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:
Cloud Authorization Use Cases Version 1.0
Committee Note Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
12 May 2014
This document is intended to provide a set of representative use cases that examine the requirements on Cloud Authorization using commonly defined cloud deployment and service models. These use cases are intended to be used for further analysis to determine if functional gaps exist in current identity management standards that additional open standards activities could address.
The CloudAuthZ TC develops enhanced models for managing authorizations and entitlements in SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS contexts. CloudAuthZ enables contextual attributes and contextual entitlements sets to be delivered to Policy Enforcement Points in real time. With CloudAuthZ, authorization decisions can be informed by data such as where users are, what they are doing, which device they are using, etc.
