You are correct, I am referring to the RFC, and the interop testing test reports you mentioned in your earlier email.   I wanted to ping the group and find out if anyone was working on that.  It would enhance the RFC and, when completed, the PAG recommendation.  Just some thoughts...

Regards, Cynthia Martin/MITRE

As far as I know the PAG has not reached any recommendation or conclusion yet. Once a conclusion is reached it should be made public.

That said, I think you are referring to RFC 6090 which we reference from XML Signature 1.1. This RFC says in section 7.2 "KT-I is mathematically and functionally equivalent to ECDSA".

Are you asking whether this statement requires verification through interop testing? If so, that is probably a question for the RFC authors, but if the specifications are mathematically equivalent I'm not sure why it would be necessary.
