REST Profile of XACML v3.0 Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01

This specification defines a profile for the use of the OASIS eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML), versions 3.0 [XACMLv3] and earlier. Use of this profile requires no changes or extensions to the XACML standard.

The XACML Technical Committee defines a core XML schema for representing authorization and entitlement policies.
