Gapxse is Java api implementation of the w3c Ietf
Digital Signature that support almost all features of the interoperabily
matrix and is issued under the LPGL license. The
project started on May 2001 at the Department of Computer Science in Pisa, during the activities of the so
called "Nicchia Sicurezza delle Reti Informatiche" and served as thesis
for the members of the group.
From Febrary 2002, after leaving the dept, the original team broke
up and after a little change in the roster, decide to appear on sourceforge in searching of new
jobs, members, partners ....
The Latest developement version is the 0.7 can be tested by anyone in 5 minutes
without learnig the full api, but using the "so
called" template input method. In short we can build a new Signature
directly from a Xml file that conntains an element Signature, this file
will be a sort of "template" where extract the information to generate a
new valid Signature.
During test labs, Gapxse has been proved to be completely
interoperable with the Apache Xml Security toolkit and Ibm
Security Suite: in the sense you can sign with Gapxse and verify with
Apache/Ibm and viceversa.
