Subject: SAML V2.0 Protocol Extension for Requesting Attributes per Request v1.0 Committee Specification 01 published by OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC

OASIS is pleased to announce the publication of SAML V2.0 Protocol Extension for Requesting Attributes per Request Version 1.0 Committee Specification 01 by the members of the OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC:

SAML V2.0 Protocol Extension for Requesting Attributes per Request Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
23 August 2017

This specification, related to Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) v2.0, defines an extension to the core protocol that allows Service Providers to specify ad-hoc sets of attributes per request. This brings more flexibility than existing mechanisms, which are based on signaling pre-defined sets of requested attributes.

The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC is responsible for the standard XML-based framework for creating and exchanging authentication and  information. Interoperable exchange of security information between domains, including the ability to federate identities across domains, is crucial to developing solutions for business problems such as performing Web Single Sign-On, utilizing distributed authorization services, and securing e-business transactions.

This is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.
