WS-I Presents Specifications at Gartner Summit Standards Corner
WS-I Participating in Gartner Architecture, Development & Integration Summit 2008
Wakefield, MA, USA. May 28, 2008.
The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I: http:///www.ws-i.org) announced today that it is participating in the Standards Corner at Gartners Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit 2008 (AADI: http://www.gartner.com/us/aadi-spring) in Orlando, FL from June 9-11, 2008 at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort & Convention Center. WS-I representatives will be on hand to answer questions about the organization, including how to become a member of WS-I. WS-I is pleased to partner with Gartner for the twentieth edition of its Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit, said Michael Bechauf, president and chairman of WS-I. Both WS-I and the Summit are focused on Best Practices, so attendees looking to derive maximum value from their services-oriented architecture will benefit from visiting us at the Standards Corner. This is the third ADDI Summit in which WS-I has participated.
Attendees of the show will be able to meet and talk with WS-I representatives about how WS-I establishes Best Practices for selected sets of Web Services Standards. WS-I Profiles are freely available to the Web Services community to aid in the development and deployment of secure and interoperable Web Services. The Standards Corner is located in the Solutions Showcase, Exhibit Hall Cypress One.

WS-I has a number of Profiles in progress. All profiles may be viewed at:
Basic Profile 1.2 and 2.0
The WS-I Basic Profile 1.2 is a revision of the WS-I Basic Profile 1.1 and incorporates asynchronous messaging. It is based on the following Web Services specifications: W3C WS-Addressing 1.0 Core W3C WS-Addressing 1.0 SOAP Binding W3C WS-Addressing 1.0 WSDL Binding SOAP 1.1 Binding for MTOM 1.0
The Basic Profile 2.0 builds on the Basic Profile 1.2 and is based on SOAP 1.2 with Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM) and XML-binary Optimized Packaging (XOP).
Basic Security Profile 1.1
The Basic Security Profile is an interoperability profile that addresses transport security, SOAP messaging security and other security considerations. It references existing specifications and standards, including the OASIS Web Services Security: SOAP Message Security 1.0 specification. The Basic Security Profile 1.1 is an enhancement to the Basic Security Profile 1.0 that provides guidance on the use of Web Services Security: SOAP Message Security 1.1, as well as the REL, Kerberos, SAML, Username and X.509 security token formats.
Reliable Secure Profile 1.0
The Reliable Secure Profile (RSP) 1.0 will deliver interoperability guidance to Web Services architects and developers concerning reliable messaging with security. Reliable Secure Profile 1.0 will be based upon the following Web Services specifications: OASIS WS-ReliableMessaging 1.1 OASIS WS-SecureConversation 1.3 WS-ReliableMessaging is a Web Services specification that allows two systems to send messages to each other reliably. The aim of this specification is to ensure that messages are transferred properly from the sender to the receiver. The WS-SecureConversation specification introduces a security context and its usage. The Reliable Secure Profile 1.0 will resolve the interoperability issues that currently exist when these specifications are implemented.
The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) is an open industry organization chartered to establish Best Practices for Web Services interoperability, for selected groups of Web Services standards, across platforms, operating systems and programming languages.
WS-I comprises a diverse community of Web Services leaders from a wide range of companies and standards development organizations (SDOs). WS-I committees and working groups create Profiles and supporting Testing Tools based on Best Practices for selected sets of Web Services standards. The Profiles and Testing Tools are available for use by the Web Services community to aid in developing and deploying interoperable Web Services. WS-I also submits selected deliverables to standards bodies for eventual publication as international standards. WS-I deliverables may be downloaded at no charge from http://www.ws-i.org/deliverables/index.aspx.
