Subject: 15-day Public Review for SAML 2.0 Session Token Profile Version 1.0
The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC  members have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:
SAML 2.0 Session Token Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
13 May 2011
Web Servers and Application Servers generally maintain security state information for currently active users, particularly once some type of authentication has occurred. This specification defines a format for communicating such security session state based on the OASIS SAML Assertion. It also specifies two different mechanisms for communicating this information between servers via a standard Web browser.
The Security Services TC is currently developing a number of specification which build on the SAML 2.0 OASIS Standard and specify its use in a variety of contexts.
Public Review Period:
The 15-day public review starts Monday, 11 July 2011 and ends Tuesday, 26 July 2011. The specification was previously submitted for a 30-day public review on 01 April 2011 . This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review.
This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
