To the best of my knowledge, iLumin has patent applications pending

Hi Toby,

Basically, we encourage companies to make the appropriate disclosures to
prevent design bias and submarine patents. Please see [1], specifically
[2,3]. If ILumin has any patents relevant to the W3C/IETF XML Signature
work, please disclose it in compliance with the referenced policies.
