I would like to be placed on the encryption list.

I would like to put to the DigSIG group however the issue of whether
message level encryption has added value over transport layer
encryption unless one is using Ford/Wiener style access control
mediated by an encryption session key which is a US patent 
US5481613 owned by Nortel and exclusively licesned to Entrust.

Before commiting substantial community resources into developing
a standard I would like to know whether the result will be public
or private property.

Subject: XML Encryption List


Since a couple people seem interested in the issue of XML encryption, I
agreed to put together a list for the topic. [1] I'm forwarding this
message
on to the XML Signature list, and folks recommended some other lists,
but
I'll let those people forward it on as approriate. The only people I've
already added are those that specifically requested and to whom I
affirmitively responded via email. (If you are in doubt, you are not
subscribed).

This list is for discussion about XML encryption and related (potential)
IETF or
W3C activity. The purpose of this list is to foster the development of a
community of interest and a set of design issues and requirements that
might
prompt a
BOF or workshop on the topic. This discussion list is public, it is not
moderated, and
it is not part of an chartered activity of the IETF or W3C.

Appropriate content for this list includes discussion of requirements,
dependencies,
and technical proposals; and drafts of specifications, code, charters
and
calls for
participation. Inappropriate materials include commercial advertisements
and
announcements that are not immediately relevant to XML encryption.
(e.g.,
general
announcements about XML or cryptographic conferences or books.) Please
feel
free
to introduce yourself to the list expressing your own interest or any
issues
that you
think are relevant.
