### Changed
- Dependency version: authzforce-core-pdp-api: 7.1.1 (was: 7.1.0)

## 5.0.1
10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
### Fixed
- #22 (OW2): When handling the same XACML Request twice in the same JVM with the root PolicySet using deny-unless-permit algorithm over a Policy returning simple Deny (no status/obligation/advice) and a Policy returning Permit/Deny with obligations/advice, the obligation is duplicated in the final result at the second time this situation occurs. 
- XACML StatusCode XML serialization/marshalling error when Missing Attribute info that is no valid anyURI is returned by PDP in a Indeterminate Result
- Memory management issue: native RootPolicyProvider modules keeping a reference to static refPolicyProvider, even after policies have been resolved statically at initialization time, preventing garbage collection and memory saving.
- Calls to Logger impacted negatively by autoboxing

### Removed
- 'functionSet' element no longer supported in PDP XML configuration schema

### Changed
20
- PDP XML configuration schema namespace: http://authzforce.github.io/core/xmlns/pdp/5.0 (previous namespace: http://authzforce.github.io/core/xmlns/pdp/3.6). See *Removed* section for non-backward-compatible changes to the schema.
21
- Parent project version: authzforce-ce-parent: 3.4.0
22
- Dependency version: authzforce-ce-core-pdp-api: 7.1.0: requires to pass new EnvironmentProperties parameter to AttributeProvider module factories for using global PDP environment properties (such as PDP configuration file's parent directory)
23 24 25
- Interpretation of XACML Request flag ReturnPolicyId=true, considering a policy "applicable" if and only if the decision is not NotApplicable and if it is not a root policy, the same goes for the enclosing policy. See also the discussion on the xacml-comment mailing list: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xacml-comment/201605/msg00004.html

### Added
26 27
- New PDP configuration parameter: 'standardEnvAttributeSource' (enum) sets the source for the Standard Current Date/Time Environment Attribute values (current-date, current-time, current-dateTime), possible values: PDP_ONLY, REQUEST_ELSE_PDP, REQUEST_ONLY
- New PDP configuration parameter: 'badRequestStatusDetailLevel': Level of detail in the StatusDetail returned in Indeterminate Results when the XACML Request syntax/content is invalid. Increasing this value usually helps better pinpoint the issue with the Request.
28 29 30 31 32 33 34
- enum StandardFunction that enumerates all standard XACML function IDs
- enum StandardEnvironmentAttribute that enumerates all XACML standard environment attribute identifiers
- enum StandardCombiningAlgoritm that enumerates all standard XACML combining algorithms

### Deprecated
- Ability to marshall internal classes derived from XACML/JAXB Expressions back to the original JAXB Expression: it may consume a significant amount of extra memory, esp. when a nested PolicySet has deep nested Policy(Set)s, and it forces our internal evaluation classes to duplicate information and override many methods. Also it ties the internal model to the JAXB model which is far from optimal for evaluation purposes. Now we consider no longer the responsibility of the PDP to be able to marshall such XACML instances, but the caller's; in particular the classes ApplyExpression, AttributeDesignatorExpression, AttributeSelectorExpression, AttributeAssigmnentExpressionEvaluator no longer extend JAXB classes.

### Changed
- Native PDP request filter IDs (values of `pdp` configuration element's `requestFilter` attribute):

	- `urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:default-strict` changed to `urn:ow2:authzforce:feature:pdp:request-filter:default-strict`;
	- `urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:multiple:repeated-attribute-categories-strict` changed to `urn:ow2:authzforce:feature:pdp:request-filter:multiple:repeated-attribute-categories-strict`;
	- `urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:multiple:repeated-attribute-categories-lax` changed to `urn:ow2:authzforce:feature:pdp:request-filter:multiple:repeated-attribute-categories-lax`.

### Fixed

## 3.9.0 
56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68
### Added
- New PdpExtensionLoader method providing the list of available extensions of a given type: datatype, function, combining algorithm, etc.

### Removed
- dnsName-equal and ipAddress-equal functions, which are not to be used because they are not in XACML spec (regexp-match equivalent must be used instead)

### Fixed
- NullPointerException when defining unknown combining algorithm ID in PDP configuration
- PdpExtensionLoader throwing IllegalArgumentException if no extension found of this type, instead of returning an empty list when the extension type is actually valid but no extension found

### Tests
- New tests for custom extensions: result filter (implements CombinedDecision from XACML Multiple Decision Profile), simple datatype (dnsname-value from XACML DLP/NAC Profile), complex datatype (XACML Policy), function (dnsname-value-equal from XACML DLP/NAC Profile), combining algorithm (on-permit-apply-second from XACML Additional Combining Algorithms Profile)

## 3.8.1
### Fixed
- Removed use of SAXON StandardURIChecker for validating anyURI XACML AttributeValues causing "possible memory leak" errors in Tomcat, as confirmed by: https://sourceforge.net/p/saxon/mailman/message/27043134 and https://sourceforge.net/p/saxon/mailman/saxon-help/thread/4F9E683E.8060001@saxonica.com/. Although XACML 3.0 still refers to XSD 1.0 which has a stricter definition of anyURI than XSD 1.1, the fix consisted to use XSD 1.1 anyURI definition for XACML anyURI AttributeValues. In this definition, anyURI and string datatypes have same value space (refer to XSD 1.1 Datatypes document or SAXON note http://www.saxonica.com/html/documentation9.4/changes/intro93/xsd11-93.html or mailing list: https://sourceforge.net/p/saxon/mailman/saxon-help/thread/4F9E683E.8060001@saxonica.com/) , therefore anyURI-specific validation is removed and anyURI values are accepted like string values by the program. However, this does not affect XML schema validation of Policy/PolicySet/Request documents against OASIS XACML 3.0 schema, where the XSD 1.0 definition of anyURI still applies.

### Added
91 92
- PDP XML schema: 'requestFilter' attribute (RequestFilter extension): 
	- Added documentation about natively supported values, with '-lax' suffix meaning that duplicate <Attribute> with same meta-data in the same <Attributes> element of a Request is allowed (in compliance with XACML 3.0 core spec, §7.3.3), and '-strict' suffix meaning that it is not allowed (not strictly compliant with XACML 3.0 Core, section 7.3.3):

93 94 95
		- 'urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:default-lax' and 'urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:default-strict': default requestFilter limited to what is specified in XACML 3.0 Core specification
		- 'urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:multiple:repeated-attribute-categories-lax' and 'urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:multiple:repeated-attribute-categories-strict': implement Multiple Decision Profile, section 2.3 (repeated attribute categories)
	- Added XSD-defined default value for this 'requestFilter' attribute: 'urn:ow2:authzforce:xacml:request-filter:default-lax'
96
- Support for Extended Indeterminate values (XACML 3.0 Core specification, section 7.10-7.14, appendix C: combining algorithms)
cdanger's avatar
cdanger committed
97 98
- PdpImpl#getStaticApplicablePolicies() method that provides all the PDP's applicable policies (root and referenced - directly or indirectly - from the root policy) if all are statically resolved. This allows PDP clients to know all the policies (if statically resolved) possibly used by the PDP during the evaluation.

107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115
### Removed
- Moved/Refactored API classes sufficient for implementing PDP extensions (Datatypes, Functions, Policy/Attribute providers, etc.) to a separate project: authzforce-ce-core-pdp-api

### Fixed
- Broken validation of max policy reference depth

116
- Support all [XACML 3.0 conformance tests](https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xacml-comment/201404/msg00001.html) published by AT&T on XACML mailing list in March 2014, except IIA010, IIA012, IIA024, IID029, IID030, III.C.2, III.C.3, IIIE301, IIIE303, II.G.2-6 (see also [README](src\test\resources\conformance\xacml-3.0-from-2.0-ct\README.md) ); with specific adaptations and enhancements:
117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135
  1. XACML 3.0 Schema validation in all conformance tests (original files are not all compliant with XACML 3.0). 
  1. The original conformance test folder contains hundreds of files; for better readability and management, the folder is split in *mandatory* folder for tests on supported mandatory features (XACMl 3.0 core), *optional* folder for supported optional features (XACML 3.0 core and profiles), and *unsupported* for unsupported features.
  1. For tests requiring a custom attribute finder, added a file with suffix `AttributeProvider.xml` that configures the `TestAttributeProviderModule`. This configuration file must contain a list of `Attributes` elements defining the attributes that this attribute provider is able to provide, with their constant values.
  1. For tests requiring policies to be referenced via Policy(Set)IdReferences, added a directory named `refPolicies` containing a XACML Policy(Set) file per referenced Policy(Set).
  1. For tests of Request syntax validation (syntax error expected to be detected by Authzforce PDP at initialization-time, i.e. before any Request evaluation), added suffix `.ignore` to the original test Policy(Set) and Response files.
  1. For tests of Policy(Set) syntax validation (syntax error expected to be detected by Authzforce PDP at initialization-time, i.e. before any Request evaluation), added suffix `.ignore` to the original test Request and Response files.
- [HTML description](\src\test\resources\conformance\xacml-3.0-from-2.0-ct\ConformanceTests.html) of XACML 3.0 conformance tests
- Support of Policy(Set)Version in Policy(Set)IdReference handled by the native policy finder
- Support for Variable evaluation in Policy with scope management (variable is local to Policy where defined and inherited by Rules)
- Added support of xpathExpressions (optional XACML feature) in Request with support of namespace-prefix mappings extracted from XML document (XACML Request/Policy(Set)/Rule) (typically via `xmlns` declarations) where the xpathExpression is defined, e.g. XACML Request or Policy(Set).
- PDP configuration option to enable/disable XPath support (evaluation of xpathExpression datatype in Request/Policy(Set)/Rule, AttributeSelector and xpath functions)
- Added support of RequestDefaults/XPathVersion (optional XACML features) for evaluation of xpathExpressions in Request, and PolicyDefaults/XPathVersion (optional XACML feature) for evaluation of xpathExpressions and AttributeSelectors in Policy(Set) documents.
- Added support of ReturnPolicyIdList (optional XACML feature) to return identifiers of policies found applicable for the Request
- Added support of xpath-node-count function (optional XACML feature)
- New modes of request parsing/filtering and attribute matching to enforce best practices and optimize Request processing:
  1. *Strict Attribute Issuer match*: in this mode, an AttributeDesignator without Issuer only matches XACML Request Attributes without Issuer (faster if all Attributes have an Issuer which is recommended, but not fully XACML (§5.29) compliant)
  2. *Allow Attribute duplicates*: allows defining multi-valued attributes by repeating the same XACML Attribute (same AttributeId) within a XACML Attributes element (same Category). Indeed, not allowing this enables the PDP to parse and evaluate Requests more efficiently, especially if you know the Requests to be well-formed, i.e. all AttributeValues of a given Attribute are grouped together in the same `<Attribute>` element. However, it may not be fully compliant with the XACML spec according to a [discussion](https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xacml-dev/201507/msg00001.html) on the xacml-dev mailing list, referring to the XACML 3.0 core spec, §7.3.3, that indicates that multiple occurrences of the same `<Attribute>` with same meta-data but different values should be considered equivalent to a single `<Attribute>` element with same meta-data and merged values (multi-valued Attribute). Moreover, the XACML 3.0 conformance test 'IIIA024' expects this behavior: the multiple subject-id Attributes are expected to result in a multi-value bag during evaluation of the `<AttributeDesignator>`.
- Features to prevent circular references in Policy(Set)IdReferences or VariableReference
- Features to limit depth of PolicySetIdReference or VariableReference chain (otherwise no theoretical limit)
136

137 138 139 140 141 142
### Changed
- TestMatchAlg class replaced with official conformance test on Target matching: group II.B.
- Improved `TestUtils` class to allow configuring a directory of referenced policies for Policy(Set)IdReferences, to enable/disable XPath support, and to configure a specific RequestFilter ID, e.g. to use the MultipleDecisionProfile for conformance tests of 'optional' features.
- Renamed RELEASE-NOTES.md to CHANGELOG.md to adopt conventions from [keepachangelog.com](http://keepachangelog.com).
- Logback dependency scope (maven) from `compile` to `test` (not required for compiling, only for tests, any SLF4J-compatible library may be used at runtime).
- Moved old README.md content to the server project since it does not apply anymore to this project but to the AuthzForce server project.
143

144 145 146 147 148 149 150 151 152 153
### Fixed 
- Issues reported by PMD and findbugs
- Fixed issues in [XACML 3.0 conformance tests](https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/xacml-comment/201404/msg00001.html) published by AT&T on XACML mailing list in March 2014, see [README](src\test\resources\conformance\xacml-3.0-from-2.0-ct\README.md).
- In logical OR, AND and N-OF functions, an Indeterminate argument results in Indeterminate result. 
  1. FIX for OR function: If at least one True argument, return True regardless of Indeterminate arguments; else (no True) if there is at least one Indeterminate, return Indeterminate, return Indeterminate; else (no True/Indeterminate -> all false) return false
  1. FIX for AND function: If at least one False argument, return False regardless of Indeterminate arguments; else (no False) if there is at least one Indeterminate, return Indeterminate, return Indeterminate; else (no False/Indeterminate -> all true) return true
  1. FIX for N-OF function: similar to OR but checking if there are at least N Trues instead of 1, in the remaining arguments; else there is/are n True(s) with `n < N`; if there are at least `(N-n)` Indeterminate, return Indeterminate; else return false.
- Misleading IllegalArgumentException error for XML-schema-valid anyURI but not valid for `java.net.URI` class. Fixed by using `java.lang.String` instead and validating strings according to anyURI definition with Saxon library
- RuntimeException when no subject and no resource and no action attributes in the XACML request
