Subject: Closure of OASIS Web Services Security (WSS) TC

To OASIS Members:

This is to notify you that the OASIS Web Services Security (WSS) Technical Committee has completed its work and is now

The WSS TC standardized two versions (1.0 and 1.1) of WS-Security and produced security token profiles for Usernames,
X.509 certificates, SAML (1.0, 1.1, and 2.0) assertions, REL licenses, and Kerberos tickets. They also standardized a
profile for the use of WS-Security in conjunction with SOAP With Attachments (SWA). These standards are in wide use
today and provide the basis for end-to-end security in Web services. Follow-on work is occuring in the Web Services
Secure Exchange (WS-SX) TC to define token acquisition, secure conversations, and security policy. 

We thank the members and leadership of the TC for their contributions and dedication to this effort. The work that the
TC produced during its tenure can be found at its public pages, which will remain accessible at
The TC email archives will also remain permanently accessible at
