Subject: [xcbf] [Fwd: Re: IBG Teleconference Thursday (1/9): BiometricStandards]


-------- Original Message --------

You seem have omitted the XCBF work going on in OASIS. The
XCBF TC used the ASN.1 schema defined in X9.84:2001 as the
basis for their initial work. The during development of the XCBF
standard, the TC identified several inconsistancies between X9.84
and BioAPI, which in part prompted the early X9.84 revision
currently under ballot.

In the revised version of X9.84, support for the XML message
formats specified in XCBF were added along with the cryptographic
processing for digital signatures and encryption defined in XCBF for
XML markup. This approach provides a simple alternative to the
complex processing requirement used by the W3C XML Digitial
Signature and Encryption standards.

And it is the effort of XCBF that resulted in a common XML markup
representation of the BIR format defined in BioAPI and the biometric
objects defined in X9.84. Now this work is having influene in other
areas, as the OASIS Web Services Security TC has adopted a
contribution from XCBF to define a new web services security
token format that can carry both binary X9.84 and XML markup
formatted payloads.
