Subject: digital signatures for OASIS standards

Hi folks,

  About a month or so ago, Arshad suggested that OASIS establish a PKI and issue chairs digital certificates. Can you enlighten me
on what it would take to implement such a proposal? 

a) how do we obtain a PKI?
b) is there a cost associated?
c) how do we create digital certificates?
d) how are they applied to documents? 
e) would you need a different certificate for each type of document? (pdf, odf, doc, etc.)?
f) any other questions that I haven't thought of?

Thanks; staff is very interested in this proposal.

I just realized that as Chair of the Application Guidelines subcommitee, it becomes my responsibility to encourage movements towards
the use of applications that use PKI effectively.


As such, I believe OASIS should establish a PKI for its use and issue all Chairs digital certificates for signing official documents
within its archives.  The mechanics can be worked out once the principle is decided by vote by the TC.
