Subject [Incubator Wiki] Trivial Update of "OpenAZProposal" by HalLockhart
Date Tue, 09 Dec 2014 17:34:34 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "OpenAZProposal" page has been changed by HalLockhart:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/OpenAZProposal?action=diff&rev1=3&rev2=4

  = Proposal =
  Generally the work falls into two categories: ready to use tools which implement standardized
or well understood components of an ABAC system and design proposals and proof of concept
code relating to less well understood or experimental aspects of the problem.
  
- Much of the work to date has revolved around defining interfaces enabling a PEP to request
an access control decision from a PDP. The XACML standard defines an abstract request format
in xml and protocol wire formats in xaml and json, but it does not specify programmatic interfaces
in any language. The standard says that the use of XML (or JSON) is not required only the
semantics equivalent.

  The first Interface, AzAPI is modeled closely on the XACML defined interface, expressed
in Java. One of the goals was to support calls to both a PDP local to the same process and
a PDP in a remote server. AzAPI includes the interface, reference code to handle things like
the many supported datatypes in XACML and glue code to mate it to the open source Sun XACML
implementation.
