Subject RE: xml encryption/decryption of binary data
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 09:41:57 GMT
It's XML signature but on binary datas (which are XML files, but it's not important).
With xml-security, it's possible to sign binary datas, why not to encrypt them ?
Don't you think that this functionnality should be added ?

Then it's not truly XML signature.  Without canonicalisation you run
into the problems that you are seeing.  So the only real way past is to
treat your document as a byte stream rather than an XML document and
sign it inside a set of elements as described earlier.
