XML Digital Signatures, Encryption, and Canonicalization identify
algorithms with URIs documented in an RFC due to the beginning of
XML security in a joint IETF / W3C working group. The last version
of this was RFC 4051 issued over 7 years ago. There have been major
advances in crypto algorithms since then and this complete revision
adds many new URIs for significant new algorithms and a few for
previously overlooked algorithms. It also provides indexes by URI
and fragment portion of URI.
Working Group Summary
This is an individual submission. It has been carefully reviewed by
the XML security community and all comments resolved.
This document follows the same pattern as its predecessor, RFC
4051, but has been enhanced by adding indexes based on URI and on
URI fragment. (See Section 4 of the draft.)
Charlie Kaufman is the Document Shepherd.
Sean Turner is the Responsible Area Director.
Note that IANA will need to redo their review. The additional review
is required because an IANA registry was established in this draft
that was not in earlier versions.
