A report out of eWeek notes that OASIS has initiated final voting on version 3.0 of the Universal Description, Description, and Integration (UDDI) specification.

UDDI, which has been maligned because it was originally designed as the "white pages" and "yellow pages" of the dot-com world, has been undergoing a resurgence as more organizations seek better registry and directory capabilitiues for their internal SOA deployments.

In the eWeek report, Luc Clement, senior program manager at SystinetInc. and co-chair of the OASIS UDDI technicalcommittee, said UDDI 3.0 includes the "ability to define your own keys. You need tohave well-known interfaces and identities, and version 3 allows yougenerate your own keys." Version 3.0 also includes the ability to support changemanagement, and also includes the ability to support data integrity andnonrepudiation of data. Clement said that the technical committee "provided the ability to support digital signatures to ensure the integrity of the data" in the new version of the spec.
