Subject Re: doc or examples using XACML from WSDL
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 11:44:15 GMT
Hi Gavin,

I haven't documented the XACML stuff yet. I'm not sure if the functionality
implemented as part of CXF-4657 meets your requirements exactly.
Essentially what's there is to take a Principal name + roles from the
runtime security context, and package it up in an XACML Request with an
Action + Resource to a PDP for an authorization decision. This
functionality is provided by an interceptor which is abstract, as there is
no standard PDP interface. Therefore you need to subclass the interceptor
to actually make the invocation to a PDP, which can be a JAX-WS/JAX-RS/etc
