Subject: Re: [xcbf] Groups - XCBF XML Common Biometric Format CS April 32003.zip uploaded (fwd)


The crux of the problem that we are having lies around the fact that XCBF
is using Base64 as an encoding, but Base64 is not available in the current
version of X.693.  Given this, plus the fact that that only the
EnvelopedData and SignedData types carry certificates and CRLs, and that
even in these cases, the certificates and CRLs components are optional
(and in practice never used), it would solve all our problems if XCBF used
straight XER and/or CXER encoding.

In other words, I propose that we drop the use of (currently non-standard
in XER/CXER) Base64 in XCBF and instead stick to HEX encoding as required
by XER/CXER.  This would resolve the concerns that everyone, including Ed
Day, has voiced.
