Policy specification is a difficulty in policy-based management recently. This paper analyzes the common policy specification approaches and summarizes the definition of policy in the references. Then, we propose the concept of policy primitive language by defining that policy is a set of policy elements. Meanwhile, formalizing policy and policy primitive language, we prove the applicability of specifying policies by policy primitive language instantiation and constitute specification of policy instantiation. Finally, we specify policy primitive language instantiation of command line policy and data structure policy to verify the applicability of the approach.
