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


OASIS Enterprise Key Management Infrastructure TC Forms

Members of OASIS have organized a TC to develop Symmetric Key Services
Markup Language. The OASIS Enterprise Key Management Infrastructure
(EKMI) TC will define and develop SKSML, which describes how
applications may request life-cycle services for symmetric keys from a
server and how public-key cryptography may be used to provide such
services. The TC is convened by Arshad Noor.

The OASIS ebXML Registry TC has recently approved the ebXML Registry
Profile for Web Ontology Language (OWL) v1.5 specification as a

management, discovery and reuse of OWL Lite Ontologies. The public
review ends 11 February 2007.

OASIS ebXML IIC TC Approves IPR Transition

Members of the OASIS ebXML Implementation, Interoperability and
Conformance (IIC) TC have voted to adopt the "RF on Limited Terms" IPR
mode for their ongoing work. In selecting this mode, obligated TC
members agree to grant nonexclusive, worldwide, non-sublicensable,
perpetual patent licenses without payment of royalties or fees. See the
OASIS IPR Policy for more details.



OASIS XLIFF TC Approves IPR Transition

Members of the OASIS XML Localisation Interchange File Format TC have
voted to adopt the "RF on RAND" Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) mode
for their work. As defined in the OASIS IPR Policy, "RF on RAND"
operates in the same manner as RAND, however, it does not permit the
patent holder to charge fees or royalties for the license.
