Subject: Public Review of SKSML v1.0 - 15 day review

To OASIS members, Public Announce Lists:


The OASIS Enterprise Key Management Infrastructure (EKMI) TC has recently approved the following specification as a Committee Draft and approved the package for public review:


Symmetric Key Services Markup Language (SKSML) Version 1.0


The public review starts today, 11 December 2008, and ends 26 December 2008. This specification was previously submitted for a 60-day public review on 24 Jul 08 - 23 Sep 08[1]; this 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. All changes are noted below[2].


This is an open invitation to comment. We strongly encourage feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of OASIS work.
