Today (30 November) the XML Security WG has published a third Last Call Working Draft (LCWD) of XML Signature 1.1 [1] and a second LCWD of XML Encryption [2]. The last call  review period ends 22 December 2010.

The LCWD for XML Signature 1.1 is for the  following changes:

1. Added X509Digest element and deprecated the X509IssuerSerial element

2. Changed ECKeyValue attribute from URN to URI in section 4.5.2.3.
 
3. Replaced normative SEC1 reference (Elliptic Curve Cryptography, Version 2.0, Standards for Efficient Cryptography Group, May 2009. URL:http://www.secg.org/download/aid-780/sec1-v2.pdf ) with ECC-ALGS reference (D. McGrew, K. Igoe, M. Salter. Fundamental Elliptic Curve Cryptography Algorithms, IETF Internet Draft, May 21, 2010, URL:http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-mcgrew-fundamental-ecc-03.txt )

See http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-xmldsig-core1-20101130/

The LCWD of XML Encryption is for the following changes:

1. PBKDF2 schema updated to remove  default from PRFAlgorithmIdentifierType

2. Added recommendation to use HMAC-SHA256 with PBKDF2 instead of HMAC-SHA1

3. Updated text regarding use of Type and MimeType with EXI

4. Incorporated corrections based on previous Last Call comments (LC-2420 and LC-2386) [3].

5. Replaced normative SP800-56A reference (NIST Special Publication 800-56A: Recommendation for Pair-Wise Key Establishment Schemes Using Discrete Logarithm Cryptography (Revised). March 2007 URI: http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-56A/SP800-56A_Revision1_Mar08-2007.pdf) for ECDH in Section 5.6.4 (Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) Key Agreement) with ECC-ALGS reference (D. McGrew, K. Igoe, M. Salter. Fundamental Elliptic Curve Cryptography Algorithms, IETF Internet Draft, May 21, 2010, URL:http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-mcgrew-fundamental-ecc-03.txt ).
