No comments as of yet. Should be covered by old TC process, so may be able
to skip review for (g) despite needing some fixes to examples.

>   (i) NSN Attribute Management proposal (Thinh/Phil) - any updates?

New draft 03 posted.
Thinh: focused on cleaning up SSO profile material in both SP and IdP
initiated cases (sec 4.1). Clarified use of the request/response messages
and required/optional content.

Also clarified assumptions in section 2.3. Some schema changes
or protocol material in this draft.

Still need work done on the back-channel flows.

Scott asked about the underlying use case for the SSO integration. An error
in the text on page 17 was noted, where it mentions an AuthnRequest and
should talk about an unsolicited response. Phil attempted to outline some
uses for signaling ahead of SSO. One that seemed mutually understandable was
to signal whether a full set of "initial" data would be needed by indicating
in the response from the IdP whether the user was already "known".

Phil notes that the ModifySubject flows cover the reverse flow where an SP
pushes data back into an IdP, not just the IdP->SP direction.

Phil also explained the need for a stronger notion of RetireSubject over and
above the defederation idea.

More discussion on possible use cases for combining NewSubject with SSO also
took place. There was definitely interest in use case discussion to help
people understand the business scenarios.

>   (j) SOA-TEL Token Correlation Profile  (Federico/TI) - any updates?

Federico still looking for a way to manipulate assertion content without
breaking the signature. He proposed a way to do this using XPath filtering
transforms, but Scott noted this is not allowed by SAML. Federico believes
this limitation is a problem for various use cases, but at the moment thinks
he can't solve his problem as a result.

>   (k) Channel binding proposal -- Scott.

No updates.

>   (l) Metadata extension for Login/Discovery -- Scott.

Shibboleth project is working on code for this, the Kantara ULX group has
been reviewing the work but has a broader mandate. Still some open issues
around relationship of new extensions to older metadata elements.

>   (m) Profile for Mandatory Credentials -- Federico.

Will be discussed on future call.

> 5. Assorted mail items:
>   - Enhancements to SAML for attribute assurance.

No discussion other than on list.

> 6. Other items:
>   - Any news from Oasis conference and IIW

No discussion.

> 7. Next Call: Tuesday 19 October 2010.
