Subject: [security-services] FW: XML Encryption Last Calls

FYI, XML Encryption is now in the last call review phase at the W3C. As we
have a number of members of SSTC who are also participating in XML ENC, I
don't think we need to run a separate review process - but lets discuss this
at next week's focus group session.

Subject: XML Encryption Last Calls

Dear Chairs,

On behalf of the XML Encryption Working Group [xenc], I am 
pleased to announce the publication of our Last Call Working Drafts. If you 
are in the cc: I've identified your associated activity as a potential 
commentator. Please let me know if you plan to comment -- or if you expect 
to need more time than 3 weeks -- by Oct 26. Thank you!

We've been working to satisfy our requirements for which we've had 
consensus on for quite some time. The only difference since April is the 
updating of algorithm requirements to track the spec. We ask dependent 
activities to confirm the requirements are satisfactory and, if necessary, 
send compelling proposals with (optimally) evidence of implementability.


The WG feels this specification satisfies the requirements. Design has been 
accompanied by implementation. Consequently, we appreciate comments with 
respect to errors we have made in reading or implementing dependent 
specifications, errors in our own exposition, or further implementation 


This document satisfies the requirements that xenc and xmldsig be able to 
work together over partially signed/encrypted XML documents. Design has 
been accompanied by implementation. However, wider review and 
implementation are critical.


While we welcome all comments to the public WG list [2], the following 
communities in particular are invited to comment.

    1. XML Signature WG
    2. XML Schema WG
    3. XML Core WG
    4. Internationalization IG

ORTHOGONAL (but likely to intersect in applications)
    1. XML Protocol
    2. SAML
    3. XACML
