Invitation to comment on Cross-Enterprise Security and Privacy Authorization (XSPA) Profile of SAML v2.0 for Healthcare V2.0 from the XSPA TC - ends April 1st

We are pleased to announce that Cross-Enterprise Security and Privacy Authorization (XSPA) Profile of SAML v2.0 for Healthcare Version 2.0 from the OASIS Cross-Enterprise Security and Privacy Authorization (XSPA) TC [1] is now available for public review and comment. This is the fourth public review for the work.

The XSPA profile defines a set of SAML attributes and corresponding vocabularies for healthcare information exchange applications.

The core use-cases are the cross-enterprise exchange of protected data objects from a Service Provider (SP) to a Service Consumer (SC). In the scenarios, the request includes SAML attribute assertions that vouch for the identity of the requesting Principal and other attributes that are consequential in making the access control decision at the SP’s side.

In addition to the main use-cases, the attributes' name and values can be used in some other scenarios, such as including SAML Assertions to vouch for some of SP’s organizational attributes, or carrying the identity attributes of the signer of a data object.
