Confused about Target? Either inside Policy/PolicySet or Rule When inside Policy/PolicySet, Target provides more of meta-data. When inside a Rule, Target provides info required to process the rule.
There are 3 or more XML files in the works each time a request goes to PEP Client (Requestor) PEPPDP Policy DB 1.Authorization Request in day to day format 2. Authorization Request translated into XML format (1 st XML file) 4. Permit/Deny XML file (2 nd XML file) 3. Compare policy from step 2 with the ones in DB. (the third or more xml files)
