Widgets 1.0: Digital Signatures Draft Published
2009-03-31: The Web Applications Working Group [1] has published a  
Working Draft of Widgets 1.0: Digital Signatures [2]. This document  
defines a profile of the XML Signature Syntax and Processing 1.1  
specification to allow a widget package to be digitally signed. Widget  
authors and distributors can digitally sign widgets as a trust and  
quality assurance mechanism. Prior to instantiation, a user agent can  
use the digital signature to verify the integrity of the widget  
package and perform source authentication. This document specifies  
conformance requirements on both widget packages and user agents.  
Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity. (Permalink [3])

Everyone, please review this draft as soon as possible, preferably  
within the next two weeks so the Web Applications WG can use this  
information as soon as possible.

regards, Frederick
