#XACML MAP Authorization Profile Version 1.0 published by the XACML TC

We are pleased to announce the approval and publication of a new Committee Specification by the members of the OASIS eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) TC:

XACML MAP Authorization Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
07 April 2014


The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) provides vendor-neutral standards through the Trusted Network Connect (TNC) Working Group for Network Access Controls (NAC). This specification defines a profile for the use of XACML in expressing policies for TCG TNC Metadata Access Points (MAP). It defines standard attribute identifiers useful in such policies, in which a MAP utilizes an XACML PDP to make MAP content authorization decisions.

The prose specification and related files are available here:
