XACML v3.0 Time Extensions Version 1.0 from XACML TC approved as a Committee Specification

OASIS is pleased to announce that XACML v3.0 Time Extensions Version 1.0 from the OASIS eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) TC [1] has been approved as an OASIS Committee Specification.

The time functions defined by the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) Version 3.0 core specification have limited utility when used in widely distributed and replicated environments where times are presented with various, different time zones. In the most general case, the location of an XACML service that evaluates a request is unpredictable and uncontrollable by clients and changes from one request to the next.

This profile defines XACML functions for comparing time values that are not sensitive to the time zone chosen for those values. It defines functions for performing arithmetic on date and time values and defines a data-type for representing the day of the week along with functions to operate on values of the data-type.

This Committee Specification is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.
