Workshop Goals and Scope

The goal of this Workshop is to make recommendations to W3C and the
chartered XML Security Specifications Maintenance Working Group [1], and
build community consensus about possible next steps for the XML security
specifications. XML Signature and XML Encryption have seen broad
and form the basis for a number of security related specifications in
the Web
and Web services worlds. The Workshop will review the issues and lessons
learned in implementation, deployment and development of specifications
on these standards and will investigate:

    * Interoperability and robustness, such as spurious validation
    * Performance aspects of implementations
    * Use cases and requirements such as legal requirements for digital
      signature formats
    * Experience and consequences of building other specifications or
      standards based on the XML Signature and XML Encryption suites
    * Interaction with the evolving XML environment in general as well
      specifically XML 1.1 and Efficient XML Interchange (EXI)


The Workshop is free, and open to both W3C Members and to non-members.
proceedings will be published after the event. Space is limited and
