Subject: R: [security-services] SOA-TEL Token Correlation Profile: signatureproblem

Hi Scott,
As you courteously informed me about, SAML is possibly going to be re-profiled, to support the new version of XML signature coming out.
When do you think this will happen? By the first quarter of the next year?
So, could be I informed if the group agrees to consider additional signature profiles that allows portions of the assertion to be excluded?

Signed SAML assertions require a specific signature profile that does not
allow for arbitrary transforms. Your assertions would be rejected by any
correctly implemented off the shelf implementation unless a new profile was
developed, agreed to, and implemented.

Speaking for myself, I have some interest in a revised signature profile,
but it would be based on the eventual XML Signature 2.0 work.

Just FYI, the v1 XPath filter in XML Signature has been deprecated for years
in favor of the XPath2 Filter transform.
