new OASIS discussion list : XACML

Upon request by three eligible participants, I have created an OASIS
Discussion List whose purpose is to discuss the possible creation of an
OASIS Technical Committee. This list will exist for no longer than 90 days,
after which time a TC may be formed or not.

The scope of discussion is eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML,
an intermin moniker), which addresses security related specifications
orthogonal to the efforts of the existing Security Services OASIS TC.
Whereas the Security Services TC exists to define an XML framework for
exchanging authentication and authorization information, XACML is concerned
with the representation of access control policies as XML and the
application of these policies to XML documents. The people requesting the
creation of this discussion list have discussed this effort with the
existing Security Services TC, and that TC agreed that this work is best
carried out as a separate, though coordinated, effort rather than as a part
of the Security Services TC.

Current public examples of the types of issues the group will address are
illustrated by http://www9.org/w9cdrom/419/419.html and

The persons requesting the creation of this list are:

Ernesto Damiani, edamiani@crema.unimi.it (Individual member)
Pierangela Samarati, samarati@dsi.unimi.it  (Individual member)
Simon Y. Blackwell, sblackwell@psoom.com (Psoom)
Frank Chum, fchum@psoom.com (Psoom)
Fred Moses, fmoses@entitlenet.com (EntitleNet)

The discussion leader will be Ernesto Damiani.

discussion list by sending a message to
