Axiomatics Boot Camp: Testing XACML Policies Using JUnit, Eclipse, and the Abbreviated Language for Authorization (ALFA)


Watch the webinar

Experts Henrik Johansson of Knowit and David Brossard of Axiomatics provide a deep dive into testing XACML policies in this technical webinar.

We start with the authorization lifecycle and how it works and highlight the importance of testing access policies before implementing them in production. Next we provide an overview on using the Axiomatics PEP SDK for Java. To help illustrate the process, we demonstrate how to combine the PEP SDK with JUnit to provide a repeatable testing process.

Key takeaways:

  • Overview of the policy authorization lifecycle
  • Policy authoring with the Abbreviated Language for Authorization (ALFA)
  • Using the PEP SDK for Java with JUnit
  • Developing automated testing scripts
