Subject: RE: Liberty ID-FF 1.2 Contribution to SSTC

To:   OASIS Security Services Technical Committee
From: Jason Rouault, HP
      Jeff Hodges, Sun
      Rob Philpott, RSA Security
      Frederick Hirsch, Nokia
As members of the OASIS SSTC, we would like to submit the Liberty 
Alliance Trust Models Guidelines Specification ("TMGS", further 
identified below in [1]) for consideration in preparing future 
versions of SAML. This document provides non-normative guidance for 
implementors and deployers on establishing trust, and is a "supporting 
document" for ID-FF 1.2.
The Liberty Alliance Board, which is the steward for Liberty Alliance 
Final Specifications, has approved a motion to enable further 
development of the Liberty Trust Models Guidelines Specification under 
the auspices of the SSTC.  We believe it is in the best interests of 
the industry to converge this document, and otherwise resolve any 
issues, with future SAML versions.
Copyright in the Liberty Trust Models Guidelines 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 the Trust Models Guidelines 
Specification 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 [2].

Please let us know if there are any concerns or questions about this 
Thank you.
Jason, Jeff, Rob, Frederick
