Subject: RE: [ebxml-msg] What Next?

Title: RE: [ebxml-msg] What Next?
3 reasons.
1. This doesn't encode the SOAP Envelope. If you want to obscure this information (the manifest information, etc) you need to encrypt the entire message.
2. What about SMTP?
3. What about multihop? Maybe you don't want the information available at the intermediate hop.

I'm unclear why encapsulation is necessary to encrypt entire messages, especially if a payload item is already encrypted. It seems SSL would provide sufficient encryption of an entire message, including MIME headers.
I could see using S/MIME of OpenPGP to digitally sign an entire message, but SSL should be sufficient for encryption purposes.
Am I missing something?

We need to consider Encapsulation again.  This has a number of potential uses:

        Encryption (encrypt the entire document including MIME headers)
        Forwarding/Multi-hop (especially with the identified problems with Signatures)
        Third-Party Processing (Intermediate Timestamps...)
        Chunking (sending extremely large files in pieces)

I am sure there will be others.

We used this concept in the UCC Interop test to do encryption and it worked
quite well.  See document attached.

        I hope you have all had a pleasant break over the last couple of
weeks.  As the title says what do we do next?  It is up to you, but here are
some ideas to start with.

1 - we MUST capture, answer and resolve any question and issues during the 3
month public review of version 2.0
2 - The IIC TC would like to produce a conformance test/suite/documentation
for version 2.0, they will obvious need help from us to do this.
3 - The Business interface layer has never been written - do we need it?
4 - A primer/introduction to the messaging service
5 - A document to describe the minimum implementation.  This may be linked
to the IIC TC point above.

Question: - Do we still have outstanding requirements that still need to be
addressed? i.e. a definable business need for them.

        Over to all of you for comments.
