Welcome to Apache Santuario

The Project

The

Unknown macro: {tm}

Apache Santuario

project is aimed at providing implementation of the primary security standards for XML

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

Two libraries are currently available.

  • Apache XML Security for Java: This library 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.
  • Apache XML Security for C++: This library includes a mature Digital Signature and Encryption implementation using a proprietary C++ API on top of the Xerces-C XML Parser's DOM API. It includes a pluggable cryptographic layer, but support for alternatives to OpenSSL are less complete and less mature.

News

July 2012

The Apache Santuario team are pleased to announce the release of version 1.7.0 of the Apache XML Security for C++ library. This release provides a few bug fixes and a partial implementation of XML Encryption 1.1 features, including AES-GCM encryption and some support for newer RSA-OAEP variants.

May 2012

Version 1.5.2 of the Apache XML Security for Java library has been released. The main feature of this release is that the default canonicalization algorithm for encryption has changed from inclusive with comments to a new canonicalization algorithm that preserves the physical representation of the element being encrypted. This change fixes a problem where an element might be decrypted to the wrong namespace.

Please see the release notes for more information.
