Public Comment: Comment on Part 3: Encryption acceptable to Japan?

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Applied
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: No Action
    • Affects Version/s: ODF 1.2 Part 3 CD 1
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Security
    • Labels:
      None
    • Proposal:
      Hide

      No Action. ODF 1.2 allows the use of arbitrary cipher algorithms, and in particular allows to use algorithms defined by W3C XML Enc Core. Several of the issues specified by the document mentioned in the comment are also defined by W3C Enc Core. This applies to AES and Triple-DES for cipher algorithms, and SHA1, SHA256 and SHA512 for hash algorithms. But algorithms that are not mentioned in the W3C Enc Core specification are usable, too. So, it seems that the requirements of Japan are met, but whether this is really the case can be best decided by agencies of these countries rather than the ODF TC.
