Subject: Report on Workshop on Next Steps for XML Signature and XML

On 25 and 26 September 2007, W3C held a Workshop on Next Steps for
XML Signature and XML Encryption [1] in Mountain View, CA, USA,
hosted by VeriSign. The group has published its summary report [2].

The Workshop report indicates strong interest in additional work on
XML security and interest in a Working Group. Attendees identified
the areas of highest interest:

   - Create a basic profile of XML Signature
   - Review and possibly update the referencing
     model using xml:id and other mechanisms
   - Update cryptographic algorithms
   - Revisit XML canonicalization
   - Update the transform model.

Areas of ongoing and medium interest that were identified are scalable
profiling, implementation guidance, key management issues, XKMS, XML 1.1, EXI,
and interaction with other security organizations.

The Workshop report will serve as input for the deliverable of the XML
Security Specification Maintenance Working Group to propose a draft charter
for possible follow-up work. 

To enable discussion among Workshop attendees, Working Group
participants, and the broader community, this mailing list,
public-xmlsec-discuss@w3.org (public archive [3]), has been created.

Participation in the mailing list is open to all interested parties.

Current list subscribers include the members of the XML Security
Specifications Maintenance Working Group, and workshop participants.
If you want to be removed from the list, please let me know.
