Welcome to the XML Security Working Group!

If you have not already done so, please review the group charter [1],   the public working group page [2], and the administrative page [3].   The administrative page has the schedule of upcoming meetings, as well  as information on how to dial into the teleconferences and use IRC, a  
means to share information and take minutes during a call. You can  find the minutes of past meetings on the approved minutes page [4] and  links to and status of publications on the publications page [5]. Information on work we've done and plan to do is in the roadmap [6].

Our publications are divided into three groups:  1.1 specifications,  including XML Signature 1.1, XML Encryption 1.1 and related  
specifications; 2.0 specifications including Canonical XML 2.0 and XML Signature 2.0; and other work such as Best Practices for XML Signature. 

Canonical XML 2.0 and XML Signature 2.0 include significant changes to improve performance, reduce the attack surface,  enable  
streaming and to ease usability and adoption. We have a summary outlining the changes in Canonical XML 2.0 from 1.1 [7].

We have two mailing lists, the public mailing list ( public-xmlsec@w3.org  ) and a members-only list ( member-xmlsec@w3.org ) for  
administrative, logistics and W3C member confidential messages. All technical discussion should occur on the  public list, as noted in the  
charter.

Please introduce yourself on this mailing list, indicating who you are, who you work for, why you are interested in participating in the XML Security  WG,  which parts of the charter are of  particular interest, your  expectations, and where you might be able to contribute. If you are  working on implementations or related  standards that would be useful information, as well as your interest and ability to participate in interop. You might want to look at our interop wiki [8].

Our calls are on Tuesdays,  10-12 ET, please see the schedule on the administrative page [3]. Our next call will be 27 July.

Thank you, and welcome to the working group.

regards, Frederick

Frederick Hirsch, Nokia
