This bulletin summarizes the information presented in NIST SP 800-178: A Comparison of Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) Standards for Data Service Applications. The publication describes Extensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) and Next Generation Access Control (NGAC), and then compares them with respect to five criteria. The goal of this publication is to help ABAC users and vendors make informed decisions when addressing future data service policy enforcement requirements.
