Six XML Security Documents Published
2009-07-31: The XML Security Working Group published six documents  
related to XML signature and encryption. 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.

XML Signature Best Practices. This Working Draft describes best  
practices related to improving security and mitigating attacks, yet  
others are for best practices in the practical use of XML Signature,  
such as signing XML that doesn't use namespaces, for example.
XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 1.1. This Working Draft  
updates the signature specification.
XML Signature Transform Simplification: Requirements and Design. This  
Working Draft outlines a proposed simplification of the XML Signature  
Transform mechanism, intended to enhance security, performance,  
streamability and to ease adoption.
W3C XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1. This Working  
Draft updates the encryption specification.
XML Security Generic Hybrid Ciphers. This First Public Working Draft  
augments XML Encryption Version 1.1 by defining algorithms, XML types  
and elements necessary to enable use of generic hybrid ciphers in XML  
Security applications.
XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference. This Group Note collects the  
various known URIs for encryption algorithms (at the time of its  
publication) and indicates which specifications define them.
