OASIS Web Services Basic Reliable and Secure Profiles (WS-BRSP) Technical Committee

(b) Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this Technical Committee (TC) is to maintain WS-I (Web Services Interoperability) Basic Profiles (1.2 and 2.0), Basic Security Profile (1.0), Reliable Secure Profile (1.0), and ISO/IEC JTC 1 Profile Specifications (ISO/IEC 29361:2008 standard Information technology - Web Services Interoperability - WS-I Basic Profile Version 1.1, ISO/IEC 29362:2008 standard Information technology - Web Services Interoperability - WS-I Attachments Profile Version 1.0, ISO/IEC 29363:2008 document Information technology - Web Services Interoperability - WS-I Simple SOAP Binding Profile Version 1.0).

(c) Scope of Work

Note: A 'Profile' consists of a 'Profile Specification' and its associated Scenarios and Test Tools.

1. Perform ongoing maintenance of the following existing ISO/IEC JTC 1 Profile Specifications:

* ISO/IEC 29361:2008 standard Information technology - Web Services Interoperability - WS-I Basic Profile Version 1.1
* ISO/IEC 29362:2008 standard Information technology - Web Services Interoperability - WS-I Attachments Profile Version 1.0
* ISO/IEC 29363:2008 document Information technology - Web Services Interoperability - WS-I Simple SOAP Binding Profile Version 1.0

2. Perform maintenance as well as minor modifications that enhance interoperability of Basic Profiles (1.2 and 2.0), Reliable Secure Profile (1.0), and Basic Security Profile (1.1).

3. Progress Basic Profiles (1.2 and 2.0), Reliable Secure Profile (1.0), and Basic Security Profile (1.1) through the OASIS process and prepare them for submission to ISO/IEC JTC 1.

4. Conduct testing and demonstrations of interoperability which, at a minimum, meet the requirements imposed by OASIS policies and rules.

5. Address issues with Basic Profiles (1.2 and 2.0), Reliable Secure Profile (1.0), and Basic Security Profile (1.1) and with the Testing Tools that prevent performing work item (1)(c)4 in a repeatable, automated fashion. NOTE: The existing testing mechanism for the aforementioned ISO/IEC JTC 1 Profiles and Basic Security Profile (1.1) use a testing methodology which may not be amenable to automation.

6. Perform ongoing maintenance of Basic Profiles (1.2 and 2.0), Reliable Secure Profile (1.0), and Basic Security Profile (1.1) within this TC, including after they become ISO/IEC JTC 1 standards.

(d) Deliverables

1. OASIS Basic Profile v1.2 Specification
2. OASIS Basic Profile v2.0 Specification
3. OASIS Reliable Secure Profile v1.0 Specification
4. OASIS Basic Security Profile v1.1 Specification
5. Scenarios for OASIS Basic Profile v1.2
6. Scenarios for OASIS Basic Profile v2.0
7. Scenarios for OASIS Reliable Secure Profile v1.0
8. Scenarios for OASIS Basic Security Profile v1.1
9. Testing tools used in the TC's work
10. Future versions as part of maintenance and/or other requirements which the TC decides are appropriate

(e) IPR Mode

This TC will operate under Non-Assert IPR mode as defined in the OASIS Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy effective 15 October 2010.
