Invitation to comment on Digital Signature Service Core Protocols, Elements, and Bindings Version 2.0 from the #DSS-X TC - ends 28 March

We are pleased to announce that Digital Signature Service Core Protocols, Elements, and Bindings Version 2.0 from the OASIS Digital Signature Services eXtended (DSS-X) TC [1] is now available for public review and comment. This is the second public review for the work.

The Digital Signature Services (DSS) specification defines JSON and XML based request/response protocols – a signing protocol and a verifying protocol. Through these protocols a client can send documents or other data to a server and receive back a signature on the documents, or send documents and a signature to a server, and receive back an answer on whether the signature verifies the documents. The DSS Core specifications provide the basic protocols and elements which are adapted to support specific use cases in the DSS profiles. It also defines a timestamp format and a signature property for use with these protocols. Finally, it defines transport and security bindings for the protocols.
