   [9]wot-thing-description PR 1151 - WIP: TD Signatures

      [9] https://github.com/w3c/wot-thing-description/pull/1151

   McCool: (describes the summary)
   … discussion on the relationship with XML Signature

   [10]Oliver's comments

     [10] https://github.com/w3c/wot-thing-description/pull/1151#issuecomment-909073912

   McCool: would like to summarize the points maybe using a table
   … a concern is what IETF is doing recently
   … don't know people think what kind of strategy

   Oliver: good summary
   … 3 actions to do here
   … 1. work on description
   … 2. need for interoperable implementations
   … 3. clarifying IETF's approach
   … there is a gap in JWS
   … Plugfest could be used to check the interoperability
   … and we could give some suggestion to IETF

   McCool: one possible thing
   … signature as an experimental extension
   … then later on, could change it based on IETF's work

   Oliver: IETF JOSE is a closed WG but COSE WG is still open
   … it's working on CBOR, though

   McCool: COSE is mandate for CBOR
   … not necessarily correct for JOSE
   … my feeling is we need much modularity
   … if we did it as an extension, push off the feature till the
   next spec
   … we could write a context file which use it
   … recommend some method to handle the signature
   … not MUST but simply recommend
   … and for the next Charter we'll make commitment

   Oliver: people would like to focus on the signature part
   … regardless of the TD part

   Philipp: make sense to describe that within the Security Best
   Practices document?

   McCool: would make sense

   Kaz: would agree with that direction for this Charter period

   McCool: ok
   … (describes updated actions)
   … extract the current spec for signatures and put it in a
   separate document

   Kaz: where to put that?

   McCool: maybe under my private repo?

   Kaz: maybe a bit confusing
   … would be better to create yet another dedicated repo for that

   McCool: ok
   … what would be a good name?

   Kaz: simply a subdirectory of wot-security, e.g., signature?

   McCool: would have trouble with HTML rendering...

   (some more discussion on the possible name for the repo)

   Kaz: btw, we should have some more discussion with the TAG and
   the Security groups too

   McCool: yeah, the question here is when we want to use it

   [11]fyi, XML Signature Syntax and Processing Version 2.0 REC

     [11] https://www.w3.org/TR/2015/NOTE-xmldsig-core2-20150723/

   Kaz: think we should start with discussion with PLH and Ralph

   McCool: (adds some more comments on expected actions)
   … we need to collaborate with IETF too
   … when is there next meeting?

   [12]IETF meetings

     [12] https://www.ietf.org/how/meetings/upcoming/

   McCool: IETF 112 will be held Nov 6-12

   Kaz: technically, we can invite somebody from IETF to our vF2F
   during TPAC

   McCool: yeah, we can do that too
   … e.g., Carsten Bormann
   … we need at least one implementation for IETF, and two if we
   want to make it a W3C REC
   … wondering if we want to include this into our next WoT WG
   … not crit for TD 2.0.ical if it becomes an IETF RFC and we
   simply cite it
   … for TD 1.x, it would be optional/experimental and invokable
   by using an extension vocabulary.
