We generally uses the HTTPS transport for calling the Web Service API that has been exposed by the PDP.  With WSO2 Identity Server, we can also use Thrift protocal to communicate with PDP.  It is said that thrift is more faster than the HTTP.  Therefore we hope that we can get more performance and less response time by using thrift protocol with WSO2 Identity Server.

titleUsing thrift in XACML calls

In order to use thrift in XACML calls, you must first enable the thrift service in the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/identity/identity.xml file. Set this to true.
