Subject: XML Security 2.0 drafts published - request for comment

The W3C XML Security working group has published [1]  First Public  
Working Drafts of Canonical XML 2.0 [2] and XML Signature 2.0 [3].

The intent of the 2.0 releases includes simplification, ability to  
stream, improved performance, and improved security.

Canonical XML Version 2.0 is a major rewrite of Canonical XML Version  
1.1 that provides a declarative approach to canonicalization using  
parameters, addresses performance concerns (and implementation best  
practices), and effectively incorporates an 2.0 update to Exclusive  

XML Signature 2.0 includes a major simplification of the transform  
model, while attempting to continue to allow 1.1 transform practice if  
necessary. Section 10 outlines changes from 1.1 [4].

The Working Group is seeking review and comment on these documents,  
and requests that any comment be sent to  public-xmlsec-comments @  

Information on other deliverables of the XML Security WG, including  
the in-progress 1.1 release, is available at the publications page [5].

Thank you

regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch, Nokia
Chair XML Security WG
