Within the Apache Webservices project we are implementing WS-Security,
WS-SecureConversation WS-SecurityPolicy and WS-Trust specifications
(in Java, C and PHP) and we are also working our way towards
developing the infrastructure which will enable InfoCard
functionality.I'm wondering whether there are any plans of reusing any
of the available impls in the Heraldry/OSIS project?
