The DSS-X TC is developing new profiles of the existing OASIS Digital Signature Services core protocol "Digital Signature Service Core Protocols, Elements, and Bindings Version 1.0" and is maintaining this specification and its existing profiles. If at a later date it becomes clear that a new version of DSS is necessary then this may be produced by the TC.
DSS-X is also working on promotion of the standard and the creation of material helping dissemination. In general terms, the TC has the goal to facilitate the processing of digital signatures and time stamps in a client server environment.
The DSS-X TC is a member of the IDtrust Member Section.
The existing DSS specifications are available through the DSS TC home pageCommittee Specifications
The OASIS DSS TC carried out a set of interoperability tests for assessing the worthiness of the specifications being developed, and the feasibility of easily getting interoperable implementations from them. A document has been produced that defines and describes a number of relevant test cases for the specifications. Its contents may benefit implementors of the DSS specifications.
Latest version of the aforementioned document may be found at:
Members of the DSS TC, which have developed independent implementations of the specifications, have successfully participated in these interoperability tests.

Although not produced by the OASIS DSS TC, the following information offers useful insights into its work.
IDtrust XML.org is a community-driven site hosted by OASIS that provides reliable background information on the standard. The site also serves as a community bulletin board and directory where readers post news, ideas, opinions, and recommendations. It incorporates wiki functionality to let users edit and add new pages to the site. The public is encouraged to contribute content.
