Message-Id: <68899BF1-A427-4AD4-9420-3FE7AD3C7A7C@nokia.com>
Cc: Hirsch Frederick <frederick.hirsch@nokia.com>, Barstow Art <art.barstow@nokia.com>
To: XMLSec <public-xmlsec-maintwg@w3.org>

Included is a request for comment on  use of XML Signature for  
signing Widgets, from the chair of the WAF WG.

If you are able to review and provide comments on this use of XML  
Signature please do so, by sending comments directly to the WAF  
public comment list as requested.  (I would appreciate being cc'd).

If you think we need to act on this as a WG please indicate on this  

My understanding is that this is not urgent, but earlier comments are  


regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch

> The Web Application Formats (WAF) WG [WAF] is working on  
> specification for Widgets (=Web Applications). We have published  
> two related documents:
> 1. Widgets Requirements
>    <http://www.w3.org/TR/widgets-reqs/>
> 2. Widgets specification
>    <http://www.w3.org/TR/widgets/>
> (Newer Editor's Drafts of the above documents are available in our  
> CVS Repo [WAF-CVS].)
> One of the requirements we identified is to digitally sign a Widget  
> (e.g. one or more of the files in the Widget's ZIP). Olli Immonen  
> created the following proposal to address this requirement. His  
> proposal uses the XML Signature spec:

> Regarding the request - we seek comments on the above signing  
> proposal from you and/or the members of your Working Group. The
