This list includes open standards that reference XACML.
This list includes products and deployments that make
substantial use of XACML and that have been announced publicly.
Readers should keep in mind that this is an incomplete list of
XACML deployments. For security reasons, enterprises are
frequently unwilling to publicize the security mechanisms they
use internally, and many deployments of XACML fall into this
category. In other cases, XACML is used internal to products,
but is not exposed, and the vendor has chosen not to disclose
this internal use.
By including these links, neither the XACML TC, nor OASIS
itself, is endorsing, recommending, or guaranteeing the accuracy
of these public announcements or their related products in any
way. Neither the XACML TC nor OASIS itself guarantees the
completeness or accuracy of the information in this list of
products. This list may be modified at any time as further
information about these or other products becomes known.
Additional submissions for listings are invited by the
