Dear Kantara Community,
We are pleased to announce the formation of the OTTO WG! OTTO stands for Open Trust Taxonomy for OAuth2. We hope that you will participate in the innovative new work group!
The Work Group is necessary to bring together collaborators from existing SAML federations and the OAuth community to collaborate on a draft solution that meets their shared goals in this area and takes into account lessons learned from the past ten years of SAML.
Specifically, this Work Group is responsible for:
- Developing a set of use cases and requirements that are specific enough to guide the specification design work
- Developing a set of modular draft specifications meeting these use cases and requirements
- Overseeing the contribution of each resulting draft specification to a standards-setting organization
The APIs and data structures will enable discovery of the members of the federation and details about their services, key material and technical capabilities. The final scope will be refined after consideration of the use cases.
Existing SAML Federation XML structures will inform this work, but the data structures will not be expressed in XML but in JSON. The functions supported in existing SAML federations should be supported. Additionally, support for a more efficient and scalable discovery process and dynamic integration process will be considered.
Welcome OTTO WG to our community!
