Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: RFC Editor <email@example.com>, firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Protocol Action: 'Additional XML Security Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs)' to Proposed Standard (draft-eastlake-additional-xmlsec-uris-10.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Additional XML Security Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs)' (draft-eastlake-additional-xmlsec-uris-10.txt) as Proposed Standard This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Sean Turner. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-eastlake-additional-xmlsec-uris/
Technical Summary 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. Document Quality 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.) Personnel Charlie Kaufman is the Document Shepherd. Sean Turner is the Responsible Area Director. IANA Note 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.
