Subject: Standards for Web-signing II
The answer to my earlier request seems to be: There are apparently no standards and nothing in the works either with respect to signing on-line data on the web using Internet browsers. Since web-signing is today [*] used by many, many, more people and organizations than there are users of signed e-email, I remain puzzled. Is the PKI community really just a bunch of "nerds", mostly out of touch with the needs of the market? The question is open. *] Like Scandinavian banks having > 0.5M of users. All current systems rely on entirely proprietary mechanisms. Most of the vendors even require NDAs for getting the documentation.

As web-signing is a core function of many e-governments when communicating with their citizens it seems that this should be standardized if not already is. Pointers are welcome.
