No, but it uses the same ABAC model as of NIST and others. None of these
specifications are particularly approachable, but they're largely in
agreement as regards terms and model.

For what it's worth, I'm not sure that the 258 work would ever quite sit in
the same model, at least not without a SPIF-aware PDP.

Using the same model would, of course, mean that one could hand
authorization decisions to a standard XACML PDP, but wouldn't have to, and
I doubt many would want to.
