The GFIPM Metadata 2.0 specification defines common syntax and semantics for metadata describing users, entities (trusted software service endpoints), resources (sensitive data objects, databases, documents, etc.), actions (attempts by users or entities to access resources), and the data-sharing environment in which actions occur.  This metadata can be used in support of identification, authentication, privilege management, auditing, and personalization across a federation.
