I'll summarize the SOTD sections and other front-matter here, and will  
put them into the actual drafts when they get installed...

Frederick, you'll want to do a lot of copy & paste out of this e-mail  
for the transition request.

XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1
W3C Working Draft 26 February 2009

This version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-xmlenc-core1-20090226/
Latest version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlenc-core1/
Previous version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xmlenc-core-20021210/
Latest XML Encryption recommendation:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlenc-core/

Abstract
This document specifies a process for encrypting data and representing  
the result in XML. The data may be arbitrary data (including an XML  
document), an XML element, or XML element content. The result of  
encrypting data is an XML Encryption element which contains or  
references the cipher data.



Status of this Document

This section describes the status of this document at the time of its  
publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of  
current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical  
report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/ 
.

This is a First Public Working Draft of "XML Encryption 1.1."

At the time of this publication, the most recent W3C Recommendation of  
XML Encryption 1 is the 10 December 2002 XML Encryption Recommendation.


Conformance-affecting changes against this previous recommendation  
mainly affect the set of mandatory to implement cryptographic  
algorithms, by adding Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Key Agreement.  
There is currently no consensus about the inclusion of this algorithm  
as mandatory to implement, and the Working Group seeks early community  
input into what algorithms should be supported.  Arguments for and  
against specific approaches are called out in an editorial note in  
section 5.1, Algorithm Identifiers and Implementation Requirements.

This document was developed by the XML Security Working Group. The  
Working Group expects to advance this Working Draft to Recommendation  
Status.

This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February  
2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent  
disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group;  
that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent. An  
individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual

XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 1.1
W3C Working Draft 26 February 2009

This version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-xmldsig-core1-20090226/
Latest version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core1/
Previous version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-xmldsig-core-20080610/
Latest XML Signature recommendation:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/

Abstract
This document specifies XML digital signature processing rules and  
syntax. XML Signatures provide integrity, message authentication, and/ 
or signer authentication services for data of any type, whether  
located within the XML that includes the signature or elsewhere.




Status of this Document

publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of  
current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical  
report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/ 
.
This is a First Public Working Draft of "XML Signature 1.1."

At the time of this publication, the most recent W3C Recommendation of  
XML Signature 1 is the 10 June 2008 XML Signature (Second Edition)  
Recommendation.

Conformance-affecting changes against this previous recommendation  
mainly affect the set of mandatory to implement cryptographic  
algorithms, by adding Elliptic Curve DSA (and mark-up for  
corresponding key material), and additional hash algorithms. There is  
currently no consensus about the inclusion of the ECDSA algorithm as  
mandatory to implement, and the Working Group seeks early community  
input into what algorithms should be supported.  Arguments for and  
against specific approaches are called out in an editorial note in  
section 6.1 Algorithm Identifiers and Implementation Requirements.

The Working Group is, in parallel to this work, developing  
requirements and designs for a more radically different version 2 of  
XML Signature.

This document was developed by the XML Security Working Group. The  
Working Group expects to advance this Working Draft to Recommendation  
Status.

XML Security Derived Keys
W3C Working Draft 26 February 2009

This version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-xmlsec-derivedkeys-20090226/
Latest version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlsec-derivedkeys/

Abstract
Key derivation is a well-established mechanism for generating new  
cryptographic keys material from some existing, original ("master")  
key material and potentially other information. This document augments  
XML Signature and XML Encryption 2nd edition by defining XML types and  
elements necessary to enable use of derived keys in XML security  
applications.

report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/

This is a First Public Working Draft of "XML Security Derived Keys."

This specification defines an XML Syntax and processing rules for use  
of derived keys within both the XML Signature and XML Encryption  
frameworks.  This specification does not define any new cryptographic  
algorithms, and does not include any additional mandatory to implement  
algorithms.

This document was developed by the XML Security Working Group. The  
Working Group expects to advance this Working Draft to Recommendation  
Status.

XML Signature Properties
W3C Working Draft 26 February 2009

This version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-xmldsig-properties-20090226/
Latest version:
   http://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-properties/

Abstract
This document outlines proposed standard XML Signature Properties  
syntax and processing rules and an associated namespace for these  
properties. The intent is these can be composed with any version of  
XML Signature supporting and XML SignatureProperties element and/or  
XML Encryption properties.

.

This is a First Public Working Draft of "XML Signature Properties."

The properties specified in this document are believed to be broadly  
useful, but are primarily motivated by use of XML Signature for code  
signing, and by relevant work in the W3C Web Applications Working  
Group.  This specification is intended to provide building blocks for  
profiles of XML Signature; specifying detailed processing for  
individual properties is left to these profiles.

This document was developed by the XML Security Working Group. The  
Working Group expects to advance this Working Draft to Recommendation  
Status.
