WS-I added that Basic Security Profile will also take into account work done by OASIS in the Web Services Security 1.0 specification, specifically the Username Token Profile and X.509 Certificate Token Profile. Plans are in the works to incorporate the Kerberos Token Profile once OASIS has wrapped up its efforts there.
Support for the SAML Token Profile and XRML Token Profile is also included.
