Hi Zahid,

I think XML Encryption is useful, of course, when your application uses XML
and XML-related technologies.  It is also useful when you want to store
encrypted data externally, i.e., detach it from its meta data.

Subject:  XML Encryption applied to arbitrary data





I believe XML encryption has support for encrypting non-XML data.

How would this compare to PKCS7 encryption and decryption of
non-XML documents/data?

any thoughts on advantages of using XML encryption on non-XML data?

are we getting close to final draft?

thanks,
Zahid
