Subject: A draft of the noticement of releasing a first draft of the Visible Signature profile



Follows a draft of the email to be sent to intended audience.






To ----:


The OASIS DSS-X committee is releasing a first committee draft of a digital signatures profile called “Visible Signatures profile”.

This profile is aimed to incorporate visible information into documents as part of the digital signature operation.

Incorporating a visible signature as part of a digital signature operation is mandatory for the acceptance of digital signatures in many business scenarios and applications.


Today, there is an existing support in several document types such as PDF and MS Office 2007, as well as non standard support in other documents types. Eventually, many document types will support the both visible and non-visible digital signature embedded in the document.


The target of the Visible Signature profile is to provide a general interface to a digital signature service for incorporating a visible signature to any type of document.


To ease the collaboration of a visible signature into applications, the profile defines several types of scenarios/policies. Two of the most outstanding usages of implementing a digital signature into documents are application workflow scenario and a document submission scenario.


The committee will appreciate any submitted component as part of reviewing the profile specifications.


For more information of how to access the content of the profile use the following details:
