IETF W3C XML Signature Deliverables [text]

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. WG documents that (roughly) represents the consensus and direction of the WG.
  2. WG documents that are used for exploring an issue.
  3. Proposals for consideration or inclusion in an exploration or working group document.

A document's listing shows the progression of that draft. Signature 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

Core Syntax (Solo)

This document specifies the syntax and processing rules for the encoding of digital signatures using XML. Such signatures can provide integrity, message authentication, and/or signer authentication services for data of any type, whether located within the XML that includes the signature or locatable elsewhere.

Canonical XML

Requirements Document (Reagle)

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

2. Exploration
