15-day Public Review for SAML 2.0 Session Token Profile Version 1.0

The OASIS Security Services TC [1] members have produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 15-day public review:

SAML 2.0 Session Token Profile Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 03 / Public Review Draft 03
11 August 2011

Specification Overview:
Web Servers and Application Servers generally maintain security state information for currently active users, particularly once some type of authentication has occurred. This specification defines a format for communicating such security session state based on the OASIS SAML Assertion. It also specifies two different mechanisms for communicating this information between servers via a standard Web browser.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts Monday, 3 October 2011 and ends 18 October 2011. The specification was previously submitted for a 15-day public review on 11 July 2011 [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review.

Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF file included in the package.

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.
