Security in Islandora

6 years 2 weeks

XACML (pronounced Zac-Mull around here)  stands for eXtensible Access Control Markup Language - it’s an access control policy language implemented in XML, part of the Fedora security framework, and lies at the heart of Islandora’s security model.

XACML documents are stored and enforced in one of two places - either at the root of the Fedora installation (called a repository-wide policy, because it will affect the whole repository) or at the object level (as a datastream). A XACML policy defines what can be created, read, updated, or deleted in any object in the Fedora repository, and by whom. As a side note, I was charmed to find out that Create Read Update and Delete functions are often referred to using the acronym CRUD.
