Subject: [ANN] SAML V2.0 Kerberos Attribute Profile Version 1.0 approved and published as a Committee Specification

OASIS Members,

We are pleased to announce the approval and publication of an OASIS
Committee Specification (CS) by the members of the OASIS Security
Services TC [1]:

SAML V2.0 Kerberos Attribute Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
29 August 2011

This specification defines an attribute profile for the Kerberos
protocol. The SAML V2.0 Kerberos Attribute Profile describes a SAML
attribute profile for requesting and expressing Kerberos protocol
messages. In this version of the specification, this is constrained to
the Kerberos KRB-CRED message type. The mechanisms that are used to
generate the Kerberos message are outside the scope of this document
and are described by IETF RFC 4120: 'The Kerberos Network
Authentication Service (V5)'.

About the TC:
The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC 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

Members of the OASIS Security Services TC requested a Special Majority
Vote to approve this specification as a Committee Specification. The
specification had been released for public review as required by the
TC Process [2]. The vote to approve at Committee Specification (CS)
level passed [3], and the approved CS01 is now available online in the
OASIS Library as referenced above.

Our congratulations to the TC on achieving this milestone.
