Invitation to comment on #XACML REST Profile v1.1 and JSON Profile of XACML 3.0 v1.1 - ends 05 June 2019

OASIS and the OASIS eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) TC [1] are pleased to announce that XACML REST Profile Version 1.1 and JSON Profile of XACML 3.0 Version 1.1 have been approved as Candidate OASIS Standards (COS) [2]. The two COS now enter a 60-day public review period in preparation for member ballots to consider their approval as OASIS Standards.

XACML is an OASIS Standard which describes both a policy language and an access control decision request/response language (both defined in XML). The policy language is used to describe general access control requirements, and has standard extension points for defining new functions, data types, combining logic, etc. The request/response language lets you form a query to ask whether or not a given action should be allowed, and interpret the result. XACML v3.0 is an international standard (ITU-T X.1144), approved by the International Telecommunications Union - Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T).

The REST Profile specification defines a profile for the use of XACML in a RESTful architecture.

The JSON Profile proposes a standardized interface between a policy enforcement point and a policy decision point using JSON, leveraging the decision request and response structure specified in the core XACML standard.

XACML REST Profile Version 1.1 was approved as a Committee Specification on 05 December 2018. The TC received 3 Statements of Use from ViewDS Identity Solutions, Axiomatics AB, and Siemens AG [3].

JSON Profile of XACML 3.0 Version 1.1 was approved as a Committee Specification on 05 December 2018. The TC received 3 Statements of Use from ViewDS Identity Solutions, Axiomatics AB, and Siemens AG [4].
