This document summarizes non-editorial changes in XML Encryption 1.1 [XMLENC-CORE1] from the XML Encryption Recommendation [XMLENC-CORE].
Added support for derived keys, in particular:
RetrievalMethoddescription to include
ReferenceListdescription to include
AES-256-padSymmetric Key Wrap algorithms as optional.
SHA-384Message Digest as optional
For all algorithms added, algorithm identifiers and information were added to the specification.
SHA-1Message Digest to required, but DISCOURAGED.
SHA-256Message Digest to required
AES-128-GCMBlock Encryption as required, added warning about use of CBC block encryption algorithms and reference to paper on attack.
RSA-OAEPKey Transport to be used with arbitrary mask generation functions (e.g.
SHA2based) by defining an additional
URIand significantly revising specification text. Added definition of new
AES-GCMBlock Encryption description of the algorithm as equivalent to encryption followed by signing.
Encodingattribute in the
CipherReferenceelement is defined in XML Signature.
CipherValueelement is used.
