This Workshop addresses implementors and users of the XML Signature and XML Encryption Suites of specifications to discuss experiences and next steps. The intended audience includes specification writers that have built their work on top of these specifications.

Workshop Goals

The aim of this workshop is to make recommendations to the W3C and to build community consensus about possible next steps for the XML Security specifications.

Workshop Report and Next Steps

Position papers and workshop agenda are available.

The workshop report identifies areas of interest for possible follow-up work. The XML Security Specifications Maintenance Working Group is chartered to produce a draft charter for follow-up work. This Workshop report will serve as input to that deliverable. To enable discussion among Workshop attendees, Working Group members, and the broader community, a new mailing list public-xmlsec-discuss@w3.org (public archive) has been created. Participation in that mailing list is open to all interested parties.
