Subject: 45-day Public Review for BIAS SOAP Profile Version 1.0

To OASIS Members, Public Announce Lists:

The OASIS Biometric Identity Assurance Services (BIAS) Integration
TC members have recently produced an updated Committee
Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for
45-day public review:

Biometric Identity Assurance Services (BIAS) SOAP Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 03 /
Public Review Draft 02
23 February 2011

Overview: The BIAS SOAP Profile specifies XML encoded SOAP
messages to exchange biometric data and perform biometric-based
identity operations. These SOAP-based services enable an
application to invoke biometric identity assurance operations
remotely within a Services Oriented Architecture (SOA). BIAS
is intended to provide a common, yet flexible, Web services
interface that can be used within both closed and open SOA
systems. The BIAS SOAP Profile is a companion document to
ANSI INCITS 442-2010 -- Biometric Identity Assurance Services.

The OASIS BIAS Integration TC [1] complements the efforts of the
InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards
(INCITS), www.incits.org, to provide the biometrics and security
industries with a documented, open framework for deploying and
invoking identity assurance capabilities that can be readily
accessed as services. The OASIS BIAS Integration TC defines and
describes methods and bindings by which the INCITS BIAS
framework can be used within XML-based transactional Web services
and service-oriented architectures.

Public Review Period:  The public review starts today,
26 February 2011 and ends 12 April 2011. The specification was
previously submitted for a 60-day public review on 31 Jan 2010
[2]. This 45-day review is limited in scope to changes made from
the previous review of 31 Jan 2010. Changes are highlighted in
the diff-marked PDF file [3].

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