Would anyone in the WG be able to take an action to review the latest  
EXI drafts from a XML Security perspective?

Will we need to clarify order of processing of signing/EXI  
processing, for example?

Two Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) Drafts Published: Format 1.0;  
2008-07-28: The Efficient XML Interchange Working Group published two  
Working Drafts today: Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) Format 1.0 and  
Efficient XML Interchange Evaluation. The former specifies the  
Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) format. EXI is a very compact  
representation for the Extensible Markup Language (XML) Information  
Set that is intended to simultaneously optimize performance and the  
utilization of computational resources. The EXI format uses a hybrid  
approach drawn from the information and formal language theories,  
plus practical techniques verified by measurements, for entropy  
encoding XML information. Using a relatively simple algorithm, which  
is amenable to fast and compact implementation, and a small set of  
data types, it reliably produces efficient encodings of XML event  
streams. The latter document, a first public draft, is an evaluation  
of the Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) Format 1.0 with reference to  
the Properties identified by the (now closed) XML Binary  
Characterization (XBC) Working Group, relative to XML, gzipped XML  
and ASN.1 PER. Learn more about the Extensible Markup Language (XML)  
Activity. (Permalink)
