Subject: [security-services] PR: eWeek coverage of SAML and products


Web Services Security Tightens
Darryl K. Taft, eWeek

Since security remains among the key challenges that must be met
before Web services can become pervasive, some companies are moving
to answer the call.  Baltimore Technologies plc. and Hitachi Computer
Products Inc.'s Quadrasis business unit this week will each deliver
tools to help meet Web services' security challenge.  At the heart of
these technologies is SAML (Security Assertions Markup Language), an
XML-based standard for exchanging security credentials among online
business partners.  Nearing ratification by OASIS, or the
Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards,
SAML enables users to sign on to one site and have their security
credentials and information transparently transferred across
affiliated sites.
