Subject: [saml-dev] Recommendation that SAML 1.0 become an OASIS standard


As a result of a unanimous vote of the security services technical committee
conducted on Tuesday 28 May 2002, the co-chairs hereby submit the SAML 1.0
specification for consideration as an OASIS standard.

Pursuant to the process stipulated in Section 2 of the OASIS Technical
Committee Policy, the TC has published:

(a) A formal specification that is a valid member of its type.
(b) Appropriate documentation for the specification.
(c) A clear English-language summary of the specification.

This material, in the currently recommended OASIS format, is available on
the TC web site at <
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/security/#documents >

(d) Certifications of implementation

The chairs are pleased to report that 10 companies have provided
attestations of implementation and use for SAML 1.0. As SAML 1.0 conformance
allows for modular implementation of the specification, the committee has
determined that each aspect of the specification has been implemented by at
least 5 companies. All implementers have been made aware of IPR claims
regarding the specification and insofar as any processes have been
established for complying with these claims, each implementer believes they
have taken adequate steps to comply with any such rights, or claimed rights.

(e) History of previous OASIS standardization attempts.

There have been no past attempts to submit SAML for OASIS standardization.

(f) Publicly visible comments archive.

The security services TC comment archive can be found at: 
< http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/security-services-comment/ >

(g) OASIS IPR policy statement.

The chairs certify that all members of the TC have been provided with a copy
of the OASIS IPR policy. 

Respectfully submitted,

Joe Pato & Jeff Hodges
Co-Chairs OASIS Security Services TC
