Thanks Rich, David for your prompt response!
Yes, I did check the errata version of the
xacml-samlp and xacml-saml xsd. Apparently some of the
typo’s have been fixed.
However, after double checking the SAML of XACML
2.0 spec (Aug. 10, 2010), I realized that the spec did call
for using the wd-13 version of the two schemas (namespace
list on page 11). There are also some structural changes
btw the os version and the ws-13 version. For instance, the
xacml:Target element in the os version is removed from
xacml-samlp:XACMLPolicyQueryType in the wd-13 version of
I guess I will use the wd-13 version of the
schema for now. But if the XAXML TC could make their web
site links more clearer, it would be very helpful.
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):
- SAML 2.0 Profile of XACML,
Committee Specification 01, 10 August 2010
(covers XACML 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0)
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
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
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!
