XML Signature and XML Encryption are W3C Recommendations

   16 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9789

   The XML Security Working Group has published three W3C
   Recommendations today:

   http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/
     * XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 1.1. This
       document specifies XML digital signature processing rules
       and syntax. XML Signatures provide integrity, message
       authentication, and/or signer authentication services for
       data of any type, whether located within the XML that
       includes the signature or elsewhere.
     * XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1. This
       document specifies a process for encrypting data and
       representing the result in XML. The data may be in a
       variety of formats, including octet streams and other
       unstructured data, or structured data formats such as XML
       documents, an XML element, or XML element content. The
       result of encrypting data is an XML Encryption element that
       contains or references the cipher data.
     * XML Signature Properties. This document outlines the
       syntax, processing rules and an associated namespace for
       properties to be used in XML Signatures. These can be
       composed with any version of XML Signature using the XML
       SignatureProperties element. These properties are intended
       to meet code signing requirements.

   The group also published thirteen "Working Group Notes" today.
   Learn more about the Security Activity.

XML Digital Signatures for Widgets is a W3C Recommendation

   18 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9795

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a W3C
   Recommendation of "XML Digital Signatures for Widgets." This
   document defines a profile of the XML Signature Syntax and
   Processing specification to allow a widget package to be
   digitally signed. Authors and distributors can digitally sign a
   widget as a mechanism to ensure continuity of authorship and
   distributorship. A user agent, or other validation system, can
   use a digital signature to verify the data integrity of the
   files within a widget package and to confirm the signing
   key(s). Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

CSS Overflow Module Level 3 Draft Published

   18 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9794

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Overflow Module Level 3." This module
   contains the features of CSS relating to new mechanisms of
   overflow handling in visual media (e.g., screen or paper). In
   interactive media, it describes features that allow the
   overflow from a fixed size container to be handled by
   pagination (displaying one page at a time). It also describes
   features, applying to all visual media, that allow the contents
   of an element to be spread across multiple fragments, allowing
   the contents to flow across multiple regions or to have
   different styles for different fragments. Learn more about the
   Style Activity.

W3C Invites Implementations of Efficient XML Interchange (EXI)
Profile

   16 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9791

   The Efficient XML Interchange Working Group invites
   implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "Efficient
   XML Interchange (EXI) Profile." This document describes a
   profile of the EXI 1.0 specification for devices with limited
   memory capacities. Learn more about the Extensible Markup
   Language (XML) Activity.

Call for Review: Emotion Markup Language (EmotionML) 1.0 Proposed
Recommendation Published

   16 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9790

   The W3C Multimodal Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "Emotion Markup Language (EmotionML) 1.0."
   As the web is becoming ubiquitous, interactive, and multimodal,
   technology needs to deal increasingly with human factors,
   including emotions. The specification of Emotion Markup
   Language 1.0 aims to strike a balance between practical
   applicability and scientific well-foundedness. The language is
   conceived as a "plug-in" language suitable for use in three
   different areas: (1) manual annotation of data; (2) automatic
   recognition of emotion-related states from user behavior; and
   (3) generation of emotion-related system behavior. Comments are
   welcome through 14 May. Learn more about the Multimodal
   Interaction Activity.

Media Source Extensions Draft Published

   16 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9788

   The HTML Working Group has published a Working Draft of "Media
   Source Extensions." This specification extends
   HTMLMediaElement to allow JavaScript to generate media streams
   for playback. Allowing JavaScript to generate streams
   facilitates a variety of use cases like adaptive streaming and
   time shifting live streams. Learn more about the HTML Activity.
