The OASIS standards consortium announced that its members have approved the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) version 1.1 as an OASIS Standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification. SAML provides an XML-based framework for exchanging authentication and authorization information, enabling single sign-on the ability to use a variety of Internet resources without having to log in repeatedly.
"SAML has gained widespread industry adoption as a basis for federated identity and security environments," said James Kobielus, senior analyst at Burton Group. "Clearly, SAML is a living, evolving standard, and OASIS has, with the new version 1.1, incorporated changes that reflect real-world experience with SAML version 1.0."
