>Dominik Schadow has created the XML-Security Plugin proposal. A proposed incubator project under eclipse Web Tools Platform’s incubator. XML Security is one of those corner cases of XML that covers general security and more advanced Web Services. It is one of those areas that really needs some good tooling to help implement. His existing project hosted at sourceforge, provides a good set of basic tooling to teach the fundamentals of the Digital Signatures and Encryption specs. Having tooling helps with the implementation of these specs, especially for very sensitive personal data that needs to be transmitted over the wire, and even encrypted within an organizations infrastructure.
The issue is tracked in bug 243106, and the proposal is open for comments. Please post all comments regarding the proposal in the bug. If interested in helping and working on the proposal add your name or company to the proposal.
