Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2280) Public Comment: ODF1.2 part 1 cd03 - 3.16 digital sig, certificate chain

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2280?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16923#action_16923 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2280:

I concur with the observations about section 3.16 in ODF 1.2 Part 1 on Document and Macro Signatures

In that section, the first paragraph should be omitted.  It is over-reaching and may be contradicted by the provisions of Part 3.

The paragraph on documentsignature.xml needs to be revisited.  There is something off about the way this reads as a normative requirement (although signatures are optional) and how it takes primacy over "further applications specific signatures."  It may be appropriate to reserve the file name documentsignature.xml for this purpose in ODF 1.2 document packages, but I am not sure that the other requirements are appropriate, and whether there should be this signature file if there are any signature files.

Likewise, the paragraph on macrosignature.xml needs to be consolidated and then revisited.

The last paragraph and the language about concurrency is not needed.  It is not clear what it means, and shouldn't matter.  It seems unwise that signatures would be applied to other signature documents except to intentionally countersign them.  In addition, if this is a general statement it should be in Part 3, not here in Part 1.

NOTE: There is an interaction with what is said here and limitations on ability to encrypt signature documents because of rules in Part 3 CD01.
