XML-Signature is interesting if you are looking for signature and
authentication.

If you are looking for encryption/decryption, take a look to the
xml-encryption public list at W3C set up by Joseph Reagle
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-encryption/

This mail from Joseph Reagle contains references about xml security you
could look at:
