Information Assurance (IA) Controls for OGC Web Services (OWS) have been implemented for years. However, these implementations break interoperability, as they are not standardized by OGC Web Service standards. Interoperability between secured OGC Web Services and clients is limited to systems custom built to work with an IA implementation. The goal of the OWS Common Security Standard is to allow the implementation of IA controls and to advertise their existence in an interoperable way with minimal impact to existing implementations using a backwards-compatible approach. That goal is being pursued in two ways: Identify and document IA Controls for supporting authentication in a register maintained through the OGC. Specify how a service can advertise their IA controls through the Service Capabilities Document. This OGC standard applies to OWS deployed on HTTPS. It specifies how conformant OWS Services shall advertise their IA Controls and additional security features. The advertis.....
