Scott Cantor updated SECURITY-14:

Resolved as proposed on TC call on Aug 9, 2011:

> Disallow Object element in signatures
> -------------------------------------
>                 Key: SECURITY-14
>                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/SECURITY-14
>             Project: OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: Version 2.0
>            Reporter: Scott Cantor
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.0 incorporating Approved Errata
> The XML Signature profile in SAML Core doesn't explicitly disallow the use of the <ds:Object> element in signatures, although it's discouraged by implication given the other restrictions imposed. Since the element is often used to carry out wrapping attacks, and its use was never profiled, we should discourage it explicitly.
