(PR) 15-day Public Review for two SAML V2.0 Metadata Extensions Committee Specification Drafts

The OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC [1] members have produced two updated Committee Specification Drafts (CSD) and submitted these drafts for 15-day public review:

SAML V2.0 Metadata Extensions for Registration and Publication Information Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
10 January 2012

SAML V2.0 Metadata Extensions for Login and Discovery User Interface Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 03 / Public Review Draft 02
10 January 2012

Specification Overview:
SAML V2.0 Metadata Extensions for Registration and Publication Information Version 1.0 defines a set of extensions to SAML metadata that provide information about the creation and intended usage of the metadata document and information about who and how particular entities were registered.

SAML V2.0 Metadata Extensions for Login and Discovery User Interface Version 1.0 defines a set of extensions to SAML metadata that provide information necessary for user agents to present effective user interfaces and, in the case of identity provider discovery, recommend appropriate choices to the user.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts 16 February 2012 and ends 2 March 2012. The specifications were previously submitted for 15-day public reviews [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review. Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF files [3].

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.
