W3C Xenc Deliverables

Working Documents

The documents below are material to the past and present thought of the WG. Each is associated with its editor/author and previous versions. They are broken into four categories:

  1. Documents that (roughly) represent the consensus and direction of the WG.
  2. Documents that are used for exploring an issue by the WG.
  3. Proposals for consideration or inclusion in an exploration or WG document.

A document's listing shows the progression of that draft. Encryption WG drafts may have editorial markup employed to document diffs and proposals. Drafts are also regularly published as a W3C Technical Report and IETF draft; these do not contain editorial markup and satisfy more stringent editorial quality requirements (HTML validation, link checking, formatting, etc.)

1. Working Group Consensus Drafts

XML Encryption Syntax and Processing

This document specifies a process for encrypting data and representing the result in XML. The data may be arbitrary data (including an XML document), an XML element, or XML element content. The result of encrypting data is an XML Encryption element which contains or references the cipher data.

Requirements Document

This document lists the design principles, scope, and requirements for the XML Encryption specification. It includes requirements as they relate to the encryption syntax, data model, format, cryptographic processing, and external requirements and coordination.

Decryption Transform for XML Signature

This document specifies the "decryption transform", which enables XML Signatures verification even if both signature and encryption operations are performed on an XML document.
