Four XML Security Drafts Published
16 March 2010
The XML Security Working Group published four Working Drafts today:
XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1, which specifies a  
process for encrypting data and representing the result in XML.
XML Security RELAX NG Schemas, which serves to publish RELAX NG  
schemas for XML Security specifications, including XML Signature 1.1,  
and XML Signature Properties.
XML Security Generic Hybrid Ciphers. This document augments XML  
Encryption Version 1.1 by defining algorithms, XML types and elements  
necessary to enable use of generic hybrid ciphers in XML Security  
applications. Generic hybrid ciphers allow for a consistent treatment  
of asymmetric ciphers when encrypting data and consist of a key  
encapsulation algorithm with associated parameters and a data  
encapsulation algorithm with associated parameters.
XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference, which summarizes XML Security  
algorithm URI identifiers and the specifications associated with them.
