Subject: OASIS TC call for participation: Security Services

OASIS members:

A new OASIS technical committee is being formed. The XML-Based Security
Services Technical Committee has been proposed by Marc Chanliau, Netegrity;
Eve Maler, Sun Microsystems; Dave Hofert, Sun Microsystems;
David Orchard, JamCracker; and Prateek Mishra, Netegrity.

The request for a new TC meets the requirements of the OASIS TC process, and
is attached below. The purpose and goals of the committee are below.

To become a member of this new TC you must notify Marc Chanliau, the
committee chair, of your interest at least 15 days prior to the first
meeting and then you must participate in the first meeting on January 9,
2000. For the procedure for joining after the first meeting see the TC
process at http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/process.shtml

I have created a mail list, security-services, for the committee
discussions. OASIS members who are interested in participating in this
committee should subscribe to the security-services list by sending a
message to security-services-request@lists.oasis-open.org with the word
"subscribe" as the body of the message. (Note that subscribing to the mail
list does not make you a member of the TC; to become a member you must
contact the TC chair as described in the preceeding paragraph.)
