Subject: [jose] Initial Versions of JOSE Specs submitted

I've submitted initial IETF versions of the JOSE<http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/jose/> specs.  Once the postings are approved by the chairs, they'll appear as IETF -00 drafts.  These specs are:

*        JSON Web Signature (JWS) - Digital signature/HMAC specification

*        JSON Web Encryption (JWE) - Encryption specification

*        JSON Web Key (JWK) - Public key specification

*        JSON Web Algorithms (JWA) - Algorithms and identifiers specification

They are refactored from the previous individual submission versions to move algorithms and identifiers into a separate specification, per the working group charter<http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/jose/charter/>.  Also, per the working group's input, the terminology usage has been changed to no longer call both digital signatures and HMACs "signatures".  The JOSE versions contain no normative changes from the individual submission versions.

I've also posted submitted drafts at these locations:

*        http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-ietf-jose-json-web-signature-00.html

*        http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-ietf-jose-json-web-encryption-00.html

*        http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-ietf-jose-json-web-key-00.html

*        http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-ietf-jose-json-web-algorithms-00.html
