Subject: 30-day Public Review for OASIS SAML 2.0 Session Token Profile v1.0

The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC members have recently
produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and
submitted this specification for 30-day public review:

SAML 2.0 Session Token Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
22 February 2011

Overview: "Web Servers and Application Servers generally
maintain security state information for currently active users,
particularly once some type of authentication has occurred.
This specification defines a format for communicating such
security session state based on the OASIS SAML Assertion.
It also specifies two different mechanisms for communicating
this information between servers via a standard Web browser."

The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC [1] was chartered to
to "define, enhance, and maintain a standard XML-based
framework for creating and exchanging authentication and
authorization information.

Inter- and intra-enterprise application architectures require
interoperable security solutions that transcend the boundaries
of single security domains. The interoperable exchange of
security information between domains, including the ability to
federate identities across such domains, is crucial to
developing solutions for business problems such as performing
Web Single Sign-On, utilizing distributed authorization services,
and securing e-business transactions."

Public Review Period:  The public review starts today,
01 April 2011 and ends 01 May 2011.

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.
