                  draft-dorfner-core-simplemetadata-00

Abstract

   This document describes a  container format for storing serializable
   metadata. It shall provide the possibility to store and share any
   kind of metadata, including encryption support. The idea is to create
   an open, universal and interoperable standard for storing and
   distributing every kind of metadata independent from media type or
   file format.
