1.  Introduction

   The eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) [XACML-3]
   defines an architecture and a language for access control
   (authorization).  The language consists of requests, responses, and
   policies.  Clients sends a request to a server to query whether a
   given action should be allowed.  The server evaluates the request
   against the available policies and returns a reponse.  The policies
   implement the organization's access control requirements.

2.  XACML Media Type

   This specification registers an XML-based media type for the
   eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) that will be
   registered with the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)
