ISSUE-188: Agreement referenced in XML Signature 1.1 but definition not clear [Sig11 (XML Signature 1.1)]

http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/track/issues/188

Raised by: Frederick Hirsch
On product: Sig11 (XML Signature 1.1)

Issue: xenc:Agreement referenced by XML Signature 1.1 does not appear to be defined.

XML Signature 1.1 section 4.5.8, http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core-11/Overview.htm#sec-keyconvenance


states:
"The <xenc:EncryptedKey> and <xenc:Agreement> elements defined in [XMLENC-CORE1] as children of ds:KeyInfo can be used to convey in-band key agreement information, or encrypted key material."

 xenc:Agreement does not appear in XML Encryption 1.1 or in the XML Encryption schema?

also referenced in section 4.5, KeyInfo schema.
http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/Drafts/xmldsig-core-11/Overview.htm#sec-KeyInfo

Proposal:

Change references from xenc:Agreement to enc:DerivedKey in XML Signature 1.1
