I have updated the XML Signature 1.1  Interop Test Report to record completion of interop for SHA-224, including the digest, ECDSA (P256/P384/P521] with SHA-224;
SHA-224 and RSA-SHA224/RSA-SHA256/HMAC-SHA224.  

Much thanks to Pratik and Scott for completing these tests! 

I coalesced the appropriate sections now that these sections are complete and also renamed the section for HMAC Output Length for clarity. Please review the changes: 


I have also updated the interop wiki accordingly, http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/wiki/Interop (additional changes/corrections welcome)

This leaves the following items for XML Signature 1.1 at risk of removal:

(1) X509Digest

(2) DEREncodedKeyValue

(3) KeyInfoReference

We have an open question to Thomas whether two implementations of these would suffice even if from the same author. I would argue 'yes' given the nature of these items as XML points to hold values used  in processing that is either outside the scope of the spec or mimics a pre-existing element closely, but we need to be clear on this.

ACTION-897: Thomas Roessler to Confirm whether two implementations from one author are ok for DEREncodedKeyValue and KeyInfoReference specifically


regards, Frederick
