Two Security First Drafts Published: XML Signature Syntax and  
Processing Version 2.0; Canonical XML Version 2.0
22 October 2009
The XML Security Working Group has published two First Public Working  
Drafts: XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 2.0 and Canonical  
XML Version 2.0. The former provides 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 2.0 includes a new transform model designed  
to address requirements including performance, simplicity and  
streamability. This model is significantly different than in XML  
Signature 1.x, see 10 Differences from 1.x version. XML Signature 2.0  
is designed to be backward compatible, however, enabling the XML  
Signature 1.x model to be used where necessary. Canonical XML Version  
2.0 is a major rewrite of Canonical XML Version 1.1 to address issues  
around performance, streaming, hardware implementation, robustness,  
minimizing attack surface, determining what is signed and more. It  
also incorporates an update to Exclusive Canonicalization, effectively  
a 2.0 version, as well. Learn more about the W3C Security Activity.
