The W3C XML Security working group [1] has been working on a version 2.0 of XML Signature,  Canonical XML and XPath  that offers performance, usability and other improvements. We have a set of draft specifications, including requirements,  [2] that have received working group  review. We are seeking those interested in further review and implementation.

Although much interest in information representation in protocols appears to have moved toward JSON, I believe XML remains very relevant to document-based use cases.  The Canonicalization 2.0 specification may also be of interest in other contexts apart from XML Signature 2.0.

Review comments may be sent to the mail list noted in the drafts. If you are interested in interop participation please let me know.

The editors drafts in the first column have additional updates subsequent to the latest publications.


regards, Frederick
