Dear all,

Restating and summarizing the proposal from ISSUE-83 to add the
following to the algorithms note (aka. XML Security Algorithm
Cross-Reference ??, aka. Product xmlsec-algorithms ??):

* ECDSA-RIPEMD Identifier:

http://www.w3.org/2007/05/xmldsig-more#ecdsa-ripemd160

#ecdsa-ripemd160 fragment of the new namespace identifies a signature
method processed in the same way as specified by the #ecdsa-sha1
fragment of this namespace with the exception that RIPEMD160 is used
instead of SHA-1.

* RSA-WHIRLPOOL Identifier:
http://www.w3.org/2007/05/xmldsig-more#rsa-whirlpool

This implies the PKCS#1 v1.5 padding algorithm [RFC3447] as described
in section 2.3.1 but with the ASN.1 BER WHIRLPOOL algorithm
designator prefix. An example of use is

<SignatureMethod
Algorithm=http://www.w3.org/2007/05/xmldsig-more#rsa-whirlpool"/>

* ECDSA-WHIRLPOOL Identifiers:
http://www.w3.org/2007/05/xmldsig-more#ecdsa-whirlpool

The #ecdsa-whirlpool fragment of the new namespace identifies a
signature method processed in the same way as specified by the
#ecdsa-sha512 fragment of this namespace
(http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more) with the exception that
WHIRLPOOL is used instead of SHA-512.

P.S.: I associated http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/track/issues/83 with
http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/track/products/21

Is Product "xmlsec-algorithms" really XML Security Algorithm
Cross-Reference?
If so can I rename it?
http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/track/products/21/edit

P.S.: ECDSA-RIPEMD Identifier had made it into the RFC 4051 successor
draft ... from
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-eastlake-additional-xmlsec-uris-00#section-2.3.6
anyone knows it's status?
