Subject: Re: [security-services] Submission of "Liberty Alliance Trust ModelsGuidelines Document" to the SSTC

I realize that the TC is obliged to accept any submission that conforms to OASIS rules but would like some context relative to SAML.

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.
