XSign provides excellent data integrity, message and signer authentication and signer verification for all types of data located within the XML document. XML Signature is an evolving standard for digital signatures that both addresses the special issues and requirements that XML presents for signing operations and uses XML syntax for capturing the result, simplifying its integration into XML applications.
