The XML specifications do not deal specifically with security, although
there is work underway to formalize handling of digital signatures on
documents. In the meantime, take a look at the XML Security Suite on IBM's
Alphaworks site http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/xmlsecuritysuite This
deals with also with digital signing of documents in canonical form, as well
as encryption on an element level.

Subject: Native Security Features


In my search for XML security features I have found a number of vendors who
develop security suites for XML but I cannot find anything on the native
security features XML has itself.  Can anybody tell me what (if any)
security features XML provides?
