OASIS, the international e-business standards consortium, today announced that its members have approved the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) version 1.0 as an OASIS Standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification. DITA defines an XML architecture for designing, writing, managing, and publishing many kinds of information in print and on the Web. Arbortext, BMC Software, IBM, Idiom, Innodata Isogen, Intel, Nokia, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, the U.S. Department of Defense, and others participated in defining this XML architecture for publishing.

After saving your content, the words in double brackets will automatically create a link to the content (if it exists by that title already), or to the edit window to add the content if it does not yet exist.
It takes more effort to explain than it does to use it. Go ahead. Create a new 'Collaborative Story', and surround a key phrase or topic that you want to elaborate on using the double-bracket syntax and you'll be able to quickly add that new content too.

29-Sep-2005: The individual SAML V2.0 schema files are now available from persistent URLs of the form " http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/v2.0/...". They are all linked from the SAML V2.0 and Post-V2.0 Information section below.
16-Aug-2005: The Liberty Alliance ran a SAML V2.0 interoperability testing session, which was successfully completed by eight companies.Overview:
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 (an entity that is often a human user) to other entities, such as a partner company or another enterprise application.
The SSTC has a SAML Adoption Subcommittee. Technical Work Produced by the Committee:
- SAML Profiles, Bindings, and Extensions
- SAML V2.0 and Post-V2.0 Information
- SAML V1.1 Information
- SAML V1.0 Information
Although not produced by the SSTC, the following information offers useful insights into its work:
- Liberty Alliance ID-FF V1.2 specifications (which were contributed to the SSTC in November 2003)
- MIME media type registrations for application/samlassertion+xml and application/samlmetadata+xml (these registrations were done in coordination with the SAML V2.0 activity) Mailing Lists and Comments:
- Joe Pato, Hewlett-Packard and Jeff Hodges, Sun Microsystems (May 2001 to Nov 2002)
- Eve Maler, Sun Microsystems (Jan 2001 to May 2001)
- Marc Chanliau, Netegrity (Jan 2001)
This guideline speaks in favor of creating a distinctive namespace for the new identifiers in a specialized module. It explains how to do so, and some of the consequences.
The content is based on an e-mail message from Eliot Kimber on February 8, 2006 to the mailing list of the OASIS DITA Technical Committee. Note: this was written quickly, for a language design discussion. Suggestion: edit for a less conversational style.
