"XML Digital Signature and Encryption: Use and Abuse"
The WS-Security set of standards is on the threshold of ubiquitous deployment and XML applications have already taken over the world.  This presentation looks at two underlying technologies, XML Digital Signature (XMLDSIG) and XML Encryption (XMLENC), their place in the Web Services stack and their applicability to non-SOAP XML applications.   Beginning with a basic overview of the standards, we will uncover some surprising caveats and risks in the use of these technologies.
