Just a minor attempt at levity, Larry. Sorry that it failed. > you > should give an example of how digital signatures would work to sign a > SOAP or a URC. That will be dealt with in the sections on ensuring the veracity of the URC and the resource, which I hope to work on today and early next week. Once I have it written up, I am going to have one of our security consultants review it. I don't know what his schedule is, so I can't commit to a particular date for getting that part of the revision to the URI list. However, it should be late next week or early the following week. > (I also don't like a discussion that includes 'www-talk' and 'uri'; > either it belongs on one list or the other.) Since the discussion about KidCode was mostly on www-talk, it seemed appropriate to put the response there. Since it was one of the changes to the scenarios document I wanted to make for the URI group, it seemed appropriate to post it to that list as well. The digital signature material will only be sent to the URI list.
