[PR] 30-day Public Review for SAML V2.0 Attribute Predicate Profile Version 1.0

The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC [1] members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft and submitted this specification for 30-day public review:

SAML V2.0 Attribute Predicate Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
26 July 2011

Specification Overview:
The SAML V2.0 Attribute Predicate Profile provides a mechanism to allow a SAML authority to certify that a given Boolean predicate holds over one or more of a subject’s attribute values, without revealing the exact values of these attributes. The profile further defines a query format for attribute predicates.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts 15 October 2011 and ends 14 November 2011.

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.
