Specification Overview:
Web Servers and Application Servers generally maintain security state

Public Review Period:
The public review starts Monday, 3 October 2011 and ends 18 October
2011. The specification was previously submitted for a 15-day public

changes made from the previous review.

Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF file included in the package.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from
