Subject: Liberty ID-FF 1.2 Contribution to SSTC

From: Jason Rouault, HP

As members of the OASIS SSTC, we would like to submit the Liberty Alliance ID-FF Version 1.2 Specifications, 
supporting specifications, and forthcoming Errata Documents (further identified below in [1]) for 
consideration in preparing future versions of SAML.

The Liberty Alliance Board, which is the steward for Liberty Alliance Final Specifications, has approved a motion 
to enable further development of the Liberty Alliance ID-FF Version 1.2 Specifications under the auspices of the SSTC.  
As these documents are built on SAMLv1.1, we believe it is in the best interests of the industry to converge these documents 
and otherwise resolve any issues with future SAML versions.

Copyright in the Liberty Alliance ID-FF Version 1.2 Specifications is held jointly by the Liberty Alliance member companies 
identified in the document copyright statements.  Based on the Liberty Alliance Agreements and the board approval, at least 
one of our companies hereby grants OASIS the copyright license needed to prepare derivative works, among other activities, 
as required by the OASIS IPR Policy, section 3.1(1).  We believe that all of the necessary conditions for a proper Contribution 
as shown in the IPR Policy section 3.1 are met.

While the "Notice" portion of each Liberty ID-FF V1.2 Specification and Errata Document indicates that no rights are granted to 
prepare derivative works, this letter acts as the necessary license for OASIS to prepare derivative works.

Our Liberty Alliance Membership Agreements also provide for Liberty Alliance members to grant patent licenses to all parties 
under at least fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms, if such licenses are required to implement the final Liberty Alliance 
specifications.  Further information on specific disclosures which may have been made by Liberty Alliance members is located on the 
Liberty Alliance web site.

Please let us know if there are any concerns or questions about this submission.

Thank you.

Jason, Jeff, Rob, Frederick
