Use WS-Policy to exchange policies in a standard format

WS-Policy is an interoperability standard used to describe and communicate the policies of a web service so that service providers can export policy requirements in a standard format. Clients can combine the service provider requirements with their own capabilities to establish the policies required for a specific interaction. WebSphere Application Server conforms to the WS-Policy specification, so that policy information can be exchanged and received in accordance with the WS-Policy standard.
