Subject: RE: [regrep] Successful use of ebXML Registry 3.0 specifications
Okay - I got some clarification on this: A minimum of three certifications must be from OASIS organizational members. Certifications from Individual members of OASIS are fine as well, but will not count toward the required minimum of three. The required three certification statements do need to include a phrase stating that the implementations are using the specification consistently with the OASIS IPR Policy. The current appropriate IPR policy points are listed in the guidelines (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/guidelines.php#spectostand) and are as follows: "... The implementers must also certify that their implementations comply with known IP encumbrances (see IPR below)... " "The OASIS IPR policy requires that (IPR section 3.2) All legal encumbrances (copyright, patent, etc.) must be identified so that the OASIS Board of Directors have the opportunity to decide whether this work can be sent to the OASIS membership. OASIS members have the right to full knowledge about a specification before they vote to accept it. (IPR section 3.2.b) Any implementations that are used as the basis of advancing the spec (i.e. the three or more member certifications that they are "successfully using" the spec) must comply with known IPR encumbrances. (IPR section 4) The standard OASIS copyright statement must be attached to the specification document." (end of copy and pasted section) There are no known IPR encumbrances for the ebXML Registry specs. Here is the IPR statement from our TC page: "OASIS is not aware of any statements or declarations regarding IPR related to the work of this technical committee." Those of you who have or who are planning to submit implementation certifications, please check with your companies to make sure your certification statement is approved. These are better examples of certification statements submitted for SAML v2.0: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/security-services/200412/msg00014.h tml http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/security-services/200411/msg00042.h tml http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/security-services/200411/msg00105.h tml Hope this helps clarify the requirement!
