    2727The TIED attribute explorer is an application that represents the ABAC attribute interrelationships graphically.  Users can create attributes and rules from various principals and see how those credentials interact.  There is a graphical query engine that allows one to see which prinicpals have a given attribute and how they can prove it.

    29 The explorer can generate credentials for a principal if it has that principal's key (in some format).  Credentials are changes by ABAC's negotiation protocols to secure access.  While this function makes the explorer useful as a simple attribute configuration tool, we do not suggest that it is reasonable to use for large scale attribute administration.  It is primarily a tool for  visualizing fairly simple relationships.
