Subject: Minutes from FOCUS call, January 25
Scott Cantor Rick Randall John Linn Tom Wisniewski Ari Kermaier 1. Status of additional SAML 2.0 documents i. Executive Overview http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/9886/sstc-saml-exec-overview-2.0-draft-02.pdf ii. Technical Overview http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/7874/sstc-saml-tech-overview-2.0-draft-01.pdf iii. Implementation Guidelines http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/download.php/8958/sstc-saml-implementation-guidelines-draft-01.pdf Scott - What format will the acknowledgement section of these documents take? Will they be identical to the normative SAML2.0 docs? Currently, they have a different format. Deferred to the call next week especially as Ed-in-Chief Eve isn't on the call. Tom W. - concern that tech overview enumerates all the different bindings that might be used to implement a profile. Is that a goal of the overview? Will send a message to the list raising this issue. Scott - enumerating all possible bindings is useful but overview may not be the best place. Should definitely be captured as part of SAML documentation. Scott - will provide comments on implementation guidelines by end-of-week. SAML Wiki creation is on track and should be accessible soon. The Wiki would be authenticated and require posters to accept that their content is not confidential etc. This would allow parts of the Wiki to be re-used in OASIS docs. 2.
