Invitation to comment on Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) v1.4

We are pleased to announce that Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) Version 1.4 from the OASIS OpenDocument TC [1] is now available for public review and comment. This is the first public review for OpenDocument v1.4.

The OpenDocument Format (ODF) is an open XML-based document file format for office applications to be used for documents containing text, spreadsheets, charts, and graphical elements. The file format makes transformations to other formats simple by leveraging and reusing existing standards wherever possible. As an open standard under the stewardship of OASIS, OpenDocument also creates the possibility for new types of applications and solutions to be developed other than traditional office productivity applications.

OpenDocument Format v1.4 joins ODF v1.3 (approved as OASIS Standard in 2021) in providing updates to the international standard ODF v1.2, approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as ISO/IEC 26300 (2015). OpenDocument Format v1.4 makes several timely improvements.

Invitation to comment on Universal Business Language v2.4 before call for consent as OASIS Standard

OASIS and the OASIS Universal Business Language TC [1] are pleased to announce that Universal Business Language Version 2.4 is now available for public review and comment.

UBL is the leading interchange format for business documents. It is designed to operate within a standard business framework such as ISO/IEC 15000 (ebXML) to provide a complete, standards-based infrastructure that can extend the benefits of existing EDI systems to businesses of all sizes. The European Commission has declared UBL officially eligible for referencing in tenders from public administrations, and in 2015 UBL was approved as ISO/IEC 19845:2015.

Specifically, UBL provides:
– A suite of structured business objects and their associated semantics expressed as reusable data components and common business documents.
– A library of schemas for reusable data components such as Address, Item, and Payment, the common data elements of everyday business documents.
– A set of schemas for common business documents such as Order, Despatch Advice, and Invoice that are constructed from the UBL library components and can be used in generic procurement and transportation contexts.

UBL v2.4 is a minor revision to v2.3 that preserves backwards compatibility with previous v2.# versions. It adds new document types, bringing the total number of UBL business documents to 93.

The TC received three Statements of Use from Efact, Google, and Semantic [3].

Approved Errata for Common Security Advisory Framework v2.0 published

OASIS and the OASIS Common Security Advisory Framework (CSAF) TC [1] are pleased to announce the approval and publication of Common Security Advisory Framework Version 2.0 Errata 01.

This document lists the approved errata for the OASIS Standard “Common Security Advisory Framework Version 2.0.” The specific changes are listed in section 1.1, at https://docs.oasis-open.org/csaf/csaf/v2.0/errata01/os/csaf-v2.0-errata01-os.html#11-description-of-changes.

The Common Security Advisory Framework (CSAF) Version 2.0 is the definitive reference for the CSAF language which supports creation, update, and interoperable exchange of security advisories as structured information on products, vulnerabilities and the status of impact and remediation among interested parties.

The OASIS CSAF Technical Committee is chartered to make a major revision to the widely-adopted Common Vulnerability Reporting Framework (CVRF) specification, originally developed by the Industry Consortium for Advancement of Security on the Internet (ICASI). ICASI has contributed CVRF to the CSAF TC. The revision is being developed under the name Common Security Advisory Framework (CSAF). TC deliverables are designed to standardize existing practice in structured machine-readable vulnerability-related advisories and further refine those standards over time.

Two XACML Committee Specifications approved – “Related and Nested Entities” and “Separation of Duties”

OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of two new Committee Specifications by the members of the eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) TC [1]:
– XACML v3.0 Related and Nested Entities Profile Version 1.0 Committee Specification 03
– XACML v3.0 Separation of Duties Version 1.0 Committee Specification 01

These two Committee Specifications are OASIS deliverables, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.

XACML v3.0 Related and Nested Entities Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification 03
30 January 2024

Overview:

It is not unusual for access control policy to be dependent on attributes that are not naturally properties of the access subject or resource, but rather are properties of entities that are related to the access subject or resource. This profile defines the means to reference such attributes from within XACML policies for processing by a policy decision point.

The prose specifications and related files are available here:

XACML v3.0 Separation of Duties Version 1.0
Committee Specification 01
30 January 2024

Overview:

This specification defines a method for supporting separation of duties within XACML policies using obligations and allowing the full generality of attribute-based access control. In particular, duties are not required to be associated with subject roles.

The prose specifications and related files are available here:

Invitation to comment on Data Model for Lexicography v1.0

OASIS and the OASIS Lexicographic Infrastructure Data Model and API (LEXIDMA) TC are pleased to announce that Data Model for Lexicography Version 1.0 is now available for public review and comment. This 30-day review is the second public review for this specification.

About the specification draft:

The LEXIDMA TC’s high level purpose is to create an open standards based framework for internationally interoperable lexicographic work. Data Model for Lexicography v1.0 describes and defines standard serialization independent interchange objects based predominantly on state of the art in the lexicographic industry. The TC aims to develop the lexicographic infrastructure as part of a broader ecosystem of standards employed in Natural Language Processing (NLP), language services, and Semantic Web.

This document defines the first version of a data model in support of these technical goals, including:
– A serialization-independent Data Model for Lexicography (DMLex)
– An XML serialization of DMLex
– A JSON serialization of DMLex
– A relational database serialization of DMLex
– An RDF serialization of DMLex
– An informative NVH serialization of DMLex

Invitation to comment on XACML v3.0 Related and Nested Entities v1.0 from the XACML TC

We are pleased to announce that XACML v3.0 Related and Nested Entities Profile Version 1.0 CSD03 from the OASIS eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) TC is now available for public review and comment. This is the third public review for this work.

Overview:

The eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML) defines categories of attributes that describe entities of relevance to access control decisions. XACML rules, policies and policy sets contain assertions over the attributes of these entities that must be evaluated to arrive at an access decision. Principal among the various predefined entities are the entity that is requesting access, i.e., the access subject, and the entity being accessed, i.e., the resource. However, it is not unusual for access decisions to be dependent on attributes of entities that are associated with the access subject or resource. For example, attributes of an organization that employs the access subject, or attributes of a licensing agreement that covers the terms of use of a resource.

This profile defines two ways of representing these associated entities in the request context – related entities and nested entities – and defines additional mechanisms to access and traverse these entities.

TC Description:

The XACML TC specifies access control standards, based on the Attribute-based Access Control model (ABAC). The core of this work is the specification of the syntax and semantics of a policy language called XACML. Current work in the TC consists mostly of defining additional profiles of various types which build on version 3.0 of the XACML core specification.
