XACML v3.0 Hierarchical Resource Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification 02

Overview:

This Committee Specification provides a profile for the use of XACML with resources that are structured as hierarchies.

The profile covers identifying nodes in a hierarchy, requesting access to nodes in a hierarchy, and specifying policies that apply to nodes in a hierarchy.
