Policy Evaluation

Two opaque data structures are defined: am_map_t and am_properties_t. am_map_t provides a key to multiple value mapping and am_properties_t provides a key to single value mapping. am_properties_t provides the additional functionality of loading a configuration file and getting values of specific data types. These are simple data structures that are only used for information exchange to and from the policy evaluation interfaces.
