Norm, members of the XML Processing Model WG: [ cc'd public xmlsec list]

The XML Security WG has been chartered to review use cases and  
requirements related to XML Canonicalization, XML Signature and other  
XML Security specifications in order to update these core  
specifications appropriately [1]. Algorithms, security  and  
performance are of specific interest.

We are very interested in use cases and requirements from the XML  
Processing Model working group related to XML Security. Have you  
considered interactions with XML Signature and XML Encryption and  
have any resulting requirements (or use cases) that the XML Security  
WG should take into consideration?

Would it make sense to consider XML Signature/Verification and  
Encryption/Decryption as steps in a pipeline? If so, would that  
impose requirements on XML Signature and XML Encryption, especially  
with regards to serialization or other assumptions?

We are currently working on a draft requirements document so any  
input you have would be timely.

Thank you

regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch, Nokia
Chair XML Security WG
