Subject: Approval of 'SAML v2.0 Metadata Profile for Algorithm Support' asCommittee Specification

OASIS Members,

We are pleased to announce the approval of an OASIS Committee
Specification (CS) by the Security Services (SAML) TC Members:

SAML v2.0 Metadata Profile for Algorithm Support Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
21 February 2011

Overview: The SAML V2.0 Metadata specification includes an element
allowing entities to describe the XML Encryption algorithms they
support. This specification defines metadata extension elements
to enable entities to describe the XML Signature algorithms they
support, and a profile for using both elements to enable better
algorithm agility for profiles that rely on metadata.

The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC was chartered to address
issues and enhancement requests that have arisen from experience
with real-world SAML implementations and with other security
architectures that use SAML. Specifications developed by the
TC members add support for features that were deferred from
previous versions of SAML. TC members are also developing an
approach for unifying various identity federation models found
in real-world SAML implementations and SAML-based security
