I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-xmldsig-xpf2-01.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the XML Digital Signatures Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: XML-Signature XPath Filter 2.0
	Author(s)	: J. Boyer, M. Hughes, J. Reagle
	Filename	: draft-ietf-xmldsig-xpf2-01.txt
	Pages		: 18

XML Signature [XML-DSig] recommends a standard means for specifying
information content to be digitally signed and for representing the
resulting digital signatures in XML. Some applications require the
ability to specify a subset of a given XML document as the
information content to be signed. The XML Signature specification
meets this requirement with the XPath transform. However, this
transform can be difficult to implement efficiently with existing
technologies. This specification defines a new XML Signature
transform to facilitate the development of efficient document
subsetting implementations that interoperate under similar
performance profiles.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
