Authorization support is required for various Internet protocols, for example, TLS, CMS and their consumers, and others. The X.509 AttributeCertificate provides a structure which can form the basis for such services [X.509]. This specification defines two profiles (a simple one and a 'full' one) for the use of X.509 AttributeCertificates to provide such authorization services.
