Invitation to comment on #SAML V2.0 Subject Identifier Attributes Profile V1.0, ends Nov. 2nd

We are pleased to announce that SAML V2.0 Subject Identifier Attributes Profile Version 1.0 from the OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC [1] is now available for public review and comment. This is the third public review for this work and includes a schema submitted to the TC by the Shibboleth Project for inclusion in this draft.

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), developed by the Security Services Technical Committee of OASIS, is an XML-based framework for communicating user authentication, entitlement, and attribute information. As its name suggests, SAML allows business entities to make assertions regarding the identity, attributes, and entitlements of a subject to other entities, such as a partner company or another enterprise application.

The SAML V2.0 Subject Identifier Attributes Profile specification standardizes two new SAML Attributes to identify security subjects, as a replacement for long-standing inconsistent practice with the <saml:NameID> and <saml:Attribute> constructs. It also addresses recognized deficiencies with the SAML V2.0 urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent Name Identifier format.
