FORM BEGINS

I, Mario Jeckle,

W3C Advisory Committee Representative of

DaimlerChrysler Research and Technology

available via electronic mail at:

having read the XML Key Management System Activity Proposal of 10 2001,
submit a review

   [ ] in support of this proposal as written

   [X] in support of this proposal with the following modifications:

Maybe it should be added that the Key Management allows applications to
interoperate _without a priori knowledge_ of each other.


In section 3, Background, it is mentioned that:
'Yes. The principal concern is that XML Protocol and WSDL may
developed in a manner that does not permit the secure application
of cryptographic enhancements and thus be unable to meet the needs
of either XKMS or future trusted Web Services.'

Perhaps this sounds a little too exaggerated ... XMLP as it currently stands 
permits security at the application layer by the application of XML DSig and 
Encryption directly to the XML encoded payload as well as the transparent usage 
of secure wire protocols like SSL.


   [ ] in opposition to this proposal, unless the following
       modifications are made:

   [ ] in opposition to this proposal for the following reasons:
