OASIS members and other interested parties,
The OASIS Electronic Identity Credential Trust Elevation Methods (Trust Elevation) TC members  have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:
Authentication Step-Up Protocol and Metadata Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
22 October 2016
Electronic Identity Credential Trust Elevation Methods are used to increase assurance in entity identification using authentication events and related entity information for the purpose of risk mitigation when making access control policy decisions.
The goals of this draft specification are:
- To propose simple Trust Elevation architectural patterns demonstrating the use of Trust Elevation in modern Access Control architectures.
- To describe a common metadata set, mechanisms and protocol elements for Trust Elevation information exchanges.
- To promote the use of Trust Elevation elements to facilitate standardization among the many technologies and approaches currently in use for credential & authentication risk mitigation.
Public Review Period:
The public review starts 17 November 2016 at 00:00 UTC and ends 01 December 2016 at 11:59 UTC. The specification was previously submitted for public review .
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.
