    custom JACC provider

    Gary Hu Newbie

      Can somebody show me the complete steps to build a custom JACC provider in the JBoss?
      I've looked through this forum and collect some information relevant to this topic. But I do not see a complete guidance.
      My goal is to integrate the XACML to my security layer for the authorization purpose. I hope I am heading to the right approach.
      Any input is appreciated.

          JACC is a specification that ties in the authorization world to the java permission based model.

          Since you have a need for xacml, you will have to do a lot of work, in mapping the xacml request/response semantics to the permissions model. I am not sure if this is worth the effort.

          At JBoss, we have been thinking about the Authorization space, with a model that is extensible. Jacc, xacml and ws-* specs can be implementation details.

          There is a feature request for xacml impl:
