[gtld-tech] [tmch-tech] Test SMDs files now available

I'm also using the XMLSec and LibXML2 libraries and I'm just finishing off the verification of SMD signatures.

Slightly OT but the only issues I've encountered are around the 'id' attribute lacking the prescribed 'xml' prefix, I've had to adjust the invocation to XMLSec to get around the reference errors. 

See section 3.2 of http://www.aleksey.com/xmlsec/faq.html and http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-id/ (dated 9 Sept 2005)

Two questions:

Has anyone else encountered this?
Which libraries is the TMCH using to generate the SMD signatures? 

Kind regards,

Mike O'Connell


If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.

Removing the extra white space and carriage returns (pretty print) will reduce the size and reduce the risk of validation errors.
