#SAML V2.0 Enhanced Client or Proxy Profile V2.0 Committee Specification 01 published

OASIS Members,

We are pleased to announce the approval and publication of a new Committee Specification by the members of the OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC:

SAML V2.0 Enhanced Client or Proxy Profile Version 2.0
Committee Specification 01
26 August 2013


The SAML V2.0 Enhanced Client or Proxy profile is a SSO profile for use with HTTP, and clients with the capability to directly contact a principal's identity provider(s) without requiring discovery and redirection by the service provider, as in the case of a browser. This specification updates the original profile by adding support for "Holder of Key" subject confirmation and channel bindings.

The prose specification and related files are available here:
