The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) Monday demonstrated version 1.0 of Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), pushing the technology further to being adopted as a Web standard. This is important issue for Apache webmasters, as it will change data serving, Web services, and authentication issues.

Pronounced "Sam-el," its XML-based framework helps secure transmitted communications over the Internet. SAML is also important because it defines mechanisms to exchange authentication, authorization and nonrepudiation information. That designation holds the key for allowing single sign-on capabilities for Web services.

The standard is now under review by the at-large OASIS membership for consideration. The group said the standard should be approved in the next voting cycle.
