Call for volunteers: randomized hashing (ACTION-401; ISSUE-68)

From: Thomas Roessler <tlr@w3.org>
Date: Tue, 13 Oct 2009 17:36:53 +0200
To: XMLSec WG Public List <public-xmlsec@w3.org>
Message-Id: <F3EE4D01-1A26-490B-AC34-8DED9542CA64@w3.org>
We had decided a while ago that work on randomized hashing would be a  
topic for XML Signature 2.0, not for 1.1. The last summary on the  
topic is this note from Brian from October 2008 (a year ago):
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xmlsec/2008Oct/0033.html

During the call today, no volunteer to address this issue  
materialized; at the workshop in 2007, position papers on the topic  
had been submitted by IBM and IAIK.

If nobody in the WG is prepared to take up this issue, we will have to  
close it due to lack of interest. If you want to see randomized  
hashing addressed in XML Signature 2.0, then this is the time to speak  
up.

Thanks,
