Subject: Request for comment on W3C Last Call of XML Encryption 1.1, XML SecurityGeneric Hybrid Ciphers and XML Signature 1.1

Dear all,

On behalf of the W3C XML Security Working Group, I forward you the 
following announcement:

The W3C XML Security working group [1]  has published three W3C Last 
Call  [2] working drafts, indicating that the Working Group considers 
them complete, that they  have met requirements and it is appropriate to 
seek comment.  The deadline for comment is 10 June 2010. The documents 
are the following:

(1) XML Encryption 1.1 [3]:

The working group has updated the  original 2002 XML Encryption 
specification to an XML Encryption 1.1 draft.  The update includes 
clarifications, editorial corrections, addition of mandatory to 
implement Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Key Agreement, support for Key 
Derivation, requiring SHA-256 and discouraging use of SHA-1 and other 
changes; complete details of the changes are at [4].

(2)  XML Security Generic Hybrid Ciphers [5]:

This is a new specification that augments XML Encryption Version 1.1 by 
defining algorithms, XML types and elements necessary to enable use of 
generic hybrid ciphers in XML Security applications.

(3) XML Signature 1.1 [6]:

The WG also published a second Last Call for XML Signature 1.1, with the 
only substantive changes being the result of  comments from the previous 
Last Call, as noted in the status section of that document. To note are 
the addition of the KeyInfoReference element and a correction related to 
the use of Derived Keys.

The deadline is 10 June for comments. Please send any comment to the 
public comment list at  public-xmlsec@w3.org (archived at 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xmlsec/ ).

The WG also published an updated draft of the XML Security Algorithms 
Cross-Reference [7], to add Generic Hybrid Cipher algorithm information.

regards, Frederick
