WS-SX Completes the WS-* Hat Trick

OASIS has just announced the Web Services Secure Exchange (WS-SX) Technical Committee to work on the WS-SecureConversation, WS-SecurityPolicy and WS-Trust specifications to be submitted by Actional Corporation, BEA Systems, Computer Associates, IBM, Layer 7 Technologies, Microsoft, Oblix, OpenNetwork Technologies, Ping Identity, Reactivity, RSA Security, and VeriSign.

The purpose of the Web Services Secure Exchange (WS-SX) Technical Committee (TC) is to define extensions to OASIS Web Services Security to enable trusted SOAP message exchanges involving multiple message exchanges and to define security policies that govern the formats and tokens of such messages. This work will be carried out through continued refinement of the Web Services SecureConversation, SecurityPolicy and Trust specifications submitted to the TC as referenced in this charter.

That completes the hat trick of Secure-Reliable-Transactional Web Services submissions we have been busy preparing during the last few months.

See you in Redmond for the initial TC meeting in December.
