As part of my XKMS implementation effort I am announcing the availability
of three XKRSS service endpoints located at: SOAP 1.2 binding SOAP 1.1 binding XKRSS messages directly over HTTP

The following applies to all three endpoints:

- Responds to RegisterRequest, ReissueRequest, RecoverRequest, 
  StatusRequest and PendingRequest

- Synchronous, Two-phase and Asynchronous exchanges are supported; the
  two-phase exchange takes precedence when both two-phase and
  asynchronous exchanges are indicated.

- Respects requests for OpaqueClientData and RequestSignatureValue by
  copying these quantities from the request into the result.

- The shared secret distribution is handled through an 'enrollment' web 
  located at

- Results are signed using an RSA XKMS responder key.

- The notification phase of the asynchronous exchange is currently not 
  allowing results to be picked up (through PendingRequest) immediately 
  the initial request.

- The result messages produced by these services are not formatted with easy 
  consumption in mind.

- Supports registration of client generated DSA and RSA keypairs and service 
  RSA keypairs.

- Does not allow duplicate registration's of the same key.

- Recovering a service generated keypair does not affect the status of same.

- Operations conducted on the XKRSS endpoints are reflected in the XKISS 
  E.g. registration of a keypair will show up in a subsequent Locate and 

- A registration request indicating a binding to an X.509 certificate 
requires an UseKeyWith
  element with an Application attribute equal to 'urn:ietf:rfc2459' and an 
Identifier attribute
  containing a distinguished name.

The XKMS schema used is the one located at

Feedback will be appreciated.
