Subject: Public Review of Identity Metasystem Interoperability Version 1.0

To OASIS members, Public Announce Lists:

The OASIS Identity Metasystem Interoperability TC has recently approved the
following specification as a Committee Draft and approved the package for
public review:

Identity Metasystem Interoperability Version 1.0

The Identity Metasystem Interoperability specification prescribes a subset
of the mechanisms defined in WS-Trust 1.2, WS-Trust 1.3, WS-SecurityPolicy
1.1, WS-SecurityPolicy 1.2, and WS-MetadataExchange to facilitate the
integration of Digital Identity into an interoperable token issuance and
consumption framework using the Information Card Model. It documents the Web
interfaces utilized by browsers and Web applications that utilize the
Information Card Model. Finally, it extends WS-Addressing's endpoint
reference by providing identity information about the endpoint that can be
verified through a variety of security means, such as https or the wealth of
WS-Security specifications.

This profile constrains the schema elements/extensions used by the
Information Card Model, and behaviors for conforming Relying Parties,
Identity Providers, and Identity Selectors.

The public review starts today, 26 February 2009, and ends 27 April 2009.
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. Please
feel free to distribute this announcement within your organization and to
other appropriate mail lists.
