Welcome to OASIS News, a weekly update of announcements, accomplishments, and activities for the international standards consortium.

Balloting Begins for CAP and XML Catalog As OASIS Standards

Organizational members are asked to vote on two specifications that have been submitted for consideration as OASIS Standards. Common
Alerting Protocol (CAP) v1.1 provides a standard for emergency alerts and notifications to be packaged and sent in an XML format.
XML Catalogs v1.1 addresses the issue of sharing documents via an entity catalog that maps both external identifiers and arbitrary
URI references to URI references. Balloting for both ends 30 Sept.

International Open Standard for the Conduct of XML-based Electronic Business" will be presented by Tim McGrath, a member of the

information safely can be distributed over open networks by means of end-to-end security solutions. Øyvind Gjørven, a Senior Adviser
