A Closer Reading of the NIST report on ABAC

September 24, 2014

On October 1st, I will host a webinar that focuses on the NIST Special Publication 800-162 Guide to Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) Definition and Considerations, published January 2014. I highly recommend the report for anyone that has responsibility for and an interest in authorization technologies and approaches.

The NIST report is a seminal event for the industry as it is their first report on this topic. Many organizations, public and private, look to NIST for guidance on a wide range of IT topics. Having a NIST document on ABAC is a strong signal that this is a technology worthy of further examination and exploration.

In this webinar, I’ll walk through key parts of the report and add comments based on our experiences at Axiomatics. I hope to see you there and look forward to your comments and questions. Please register for the webinar here.
