EXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) provides a common language for expressing security policy, such as:

- a method for combining individual rules and policies into a single policy set that applies to a particular decision request;

- a method for basing an authorization decision on attributes of the subject; or

- an abstraction-layer to insulate the policy-writer from the details of the application environment.

These documents list Errata for the OASIS Standard eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) Version 3.0 and provide a copy of the standard with the errata incorporated.
