Subject: Invitation to comment on 2 SAML Candidate OASIS Standards - ends October 5th

OASIS members and other interested parties,

OASIS and the Security Services (SAML) TC [1] are pleased to present SAML V2.0 Metadata Interoperability Profile v1.0 and SAML V2.0 Metadata Extensions for Login and Discovery User Interface v1.0 as Candidate OASIS Standards. The COSs are now available for public review and comment.

SAML is an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider.

The Metadata Interoperability Profile v1.0 describes a set of rules for SAML metadata producers and consumers to follow such that federated relationships can be interoperably provisioned, and controlled at runtime in a secure, understandable, and self-contained fashion.

The Metadata Extensions for Login and Discovery User Interface v1.0 define a set of extensions to SAML metadata that provide information necessary for user agents to present effective user interfaces and, in the case of identity provider discovery, recommend appropriate choices to the user.

The TC has received 3 Statements of Use from the Shibboleth Consortium, Internet2, and SUNET [3].
