Subject: Re: [xacml-users] Which XSD of SAML Profile of XACML to use?

Hi Nick,

Have you checked the XACML TC main page:

in particular, the SAML 2.0 profile of XACML refers to the XACML 2.0 errata just below it,
which has different schema files. These errata files should be correct as we have used
them in Interops:
Corrected assertion schema:
Corrected protocol schema:

My understanding is that the initial SAML profile of XACML was specific to XACML 2.0. With the new XACML 3.0 specification, that profile was updated to cater for XACML 2.0 and XACML 3.0 at the same time.

These are the links you should focus on (copied from http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=xacml#CURRENT):

WD 13 does stand for working draft.

Based on the latest work on the core XACML specification, I doubt the SAML profile will be impacted but Erik, the editor, will know best.

The official xsd files published under SAML Profile of XACML 2.0 (access_control-xacml-2.0-saml-protocol-schema-os.xsd & access_control-xacml-2.0-saml-assertion-schema-os.xsd) seem to contain some bugs and won’t validate.   I found the other two new xsd files under XACML 3.0 link on OASIS web site (xacml-2.0-profile-saml2.0-v2-schema-assertion-wd-13.xsd & xacml-2.0-profile-saml2.0-v2-schema-protocol-wd-13.xsd) that have no validation errors.  


So my question is, are these two xsd files (xxx-wd-13.xsd) the latest version of xacml-samlp & xacml-saml?  If yes, why they are labeled with wd-13 (I believe wd stands for working draft)?  If not,  Is the XACML TC going to come up with new schema files for xacml-samlp and xacml-saml?


Thanks a lot!
