         System for Cross-domain Identity Management: Core Schema


   The System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) specifications    are designed to make identity management in cloud-based applications    and services easier.  The specification suite builds upon experience    with existing schemas and deployments, placing specific emphasis on    simplicity of development and integration, while applying existing    authentication, authorization, and privacy models.  Its intent is to    reduce the cost and complexity of user management operations by    providing a common user schema and extension model as well as binding    documents to provide patterns for exchanging this schema using HTTP.

   This document provides a platform-neutral schema and extension model    for representing users and groups and other resource types in JSON    format.  This schema is intended for exchange and use with cloud    service providers.
