OASIS readies provisioning standard

The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) said Thursday that members of the standards body next month will demonstrate Extensible Markup Language(XML)-based software for providing workers access to corporate applications.

The Service Provisioning Markup Language (SPML) is a mechanism that lets network administrators establish access rights and provisioning policies for employees. The standard is designed to work with other XML-based security-related standards, including Web Services Security (WS-Security) and Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML). OASIS will demonstrate SPML version 1 at the Catalyst conference in San Francisco on July 9.
