Subject: BIAS SOAP Profile V1.0 approved as an OASIS Standard

OASIS members:

We are pleased to announce that Biometric Identity Assurance Services
(BIAS) SOAP Profile Version 1.0 has been approved by the membership as
an OASIS Standard [1].

The call to vote was announced on 9 May 2012 [2] and closed 24 May
2012. A minimum of 49 affirmative votes were needed in order to win
approval. The finally vote tally was 50 affirmative votes and 0

BIAS SOAP Profile Version 1.0 specifies how to use the XML defined in
ANSI INCITS 442-2010 – Biometric Identity Assurance Services
[INCITS-BIAS] to invoke Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)-based
services that implement BIAS operations. These SOAP-based services
enable an application to invoke biometric identity assurance
operations remotely in a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA)

The BIAS SOAP Profile specifies XML-encoded SOAP messages to exchange
biometric data and perform biometric-based identity operations. BIAS
is intended to provide a common, yet flexible, Web Services interface
that can be used within both closed and open SOA systems.

The BIAS SOAP Profile is a companion document to ANSI INCITS 442-2010
- Biometric Identity Assurance Services. The INCITS document defines
the general architecture, requirements, operations, and data elements.
The OASIS document specifies the SOAP binding/implementation of these

The specification was approved as a Candidate OASIS Standard on 02
February 2012. Statements of use were received from National Institute
of Standards and Technology (NIST), Viometric LLC and the Department
of Defense (DoD) Biometric Identity Management Agency (BIMA).

More information can be found on the TCs web page at

TC Administration will now prepare and publish the final OASIS
Standard and notify members when it is available.

Our congratulations to the members of the TC and to the community of
implementers, developers and users who have brought the work
successfully to this milestone.
