Karl and Jamie,

The OASIS XML Common Biometric Format  (XCBF) Technical Committee (TC)
hereby  recommends that the CS 1.1 be made an OASIS Standard.

I hereby submit the following seven items (as required by the OASIS TC
Process)  to OASIS TC Administration:

1. The formal specification. It is also posted on the TC Web site for
public awareness and available download.

2. The summary of the specification:
"Biometrics are automated methods of recognizing a person based on
physiological or behavioral characteristics. They are used to recognize the
identity of an individual, or to verify a claimed identity. This
specification defines a common set of secure XML encodings for the patron
formats specified in CBEFF, the Common Biometric Exchange File Format
(NISTIR 6529). These XML encodings are based on the ASN.1 schema defined in
ANSI X9.84 Biometric Information Management and Security. For security
purposes, they make use of the Canonical XML Encoding Rules (CXER) for
ASN.1 defined in ITU-T Rec. X.693, and rely on the security and processing
requirements specified in the X9.96 XML Cryptographic Message Syntax (XCMS)
and X9.73 Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) standards."

3. The certification by three OASIS member organizations on using the
specification consistently with the OASIS IPR (Intellectual Property
Rights) Policy:
