The Project

The Apache Santuario project is aimed at providing implementation of security standards for XML. Currently the focus is on the W3C standards :

  • XML-Signature Syntax and Processing; and
  • XML Encryption Syntax and Processing.

Once these are implemented, XML Key Management is likely to be the next focus for the project.

Two libraries are currently available.

  1. A Java library, which includes a mature Digital Signature and Encryption implementation. It also includes the standard JSR 105 (Java XML Digital Signature) API. Applications can use the standard JSR 105 API or the Apache Santuario API to create and validate XML Signatures.
  2. A C++ library is also now available. Functionality is currently more basic than that provided by the Java library.
