OASIS announced the publication of an approved errata document listing errata to the SAML Version 2.0 OASIS Standard. The document presents some sixty errata. As required by the OASIS Technical Committee Process, the approved errata represent changes that are not "substantive". Instead, the changes focus on clarifications to ambiguous or conflicting specification text, where different compliant implementations might have reasonably chosen different interpretations.
The intent of the OASIS Security Services TC has been to resolve such issues in service of improved interoperability based on implementation and deployment experience. In addition to this normative document, non-normative 'errata composite' documents have been provided that combine the prescribed corrections with the original specification text, illustrating the changes with margin change bars, struck-through original text, and highlighted new text.
