On behalf of the XML Encryption Working Group [xenc], I am pleased to announce the publication of our Last Call Working Drafts. If you are in the cc: I've identified your associated activity as a potential commentator. Please let me know if you plan to comment -- or if you expect to need more time than 3 weeks -- by Oct 26. Thank you!
We've been working to satisfy our requirements for which we've had consensus on for quite some time. The only difference since April is the updating of algorithm requirements to track the spec. We ask dependent activities to confirm the requirements are satisfactory and, if necessary, send compelling proposals with (optimally) evidence of implementability.
SYNTAX AND PROCESSING
The WG feels this specification satisfies the requirements. Design has been accompanied by implementation. Consequently, we appreciate comments with respect to errors we have made in reading or implementing dependent specifications, errors in our own exposition, or further implementation experience.
DECRYPTION TRANSFORM FOR XML SIGNATURE
This document satisfies the requirements that xenc and xmldsig be able to work together over partially signed/encrypted XML documents. Design has been accompanied by implementation. However, wider review and implementation are critical.
While we welcome all comments to the public WG list , the following communities in particular are invited to comment.
1. XML Signature WG 2. XML Schema WG 3. XML Core WG 4. Internationalization IG
ORTHOGONAL (but likely to intersect in applications)
1. XML Protocol 2. SAML 3. XACML
