              Simplified Use of Policy Abstractions (SUPA) 
           draft-ietf-supa-generic-policy-info-model-02

Abstract 

   This document defines an information model for representing
   policies using a common extensible framework that is independent

   level of abstraction of the content and meaning of a policy.
