RFC 6030, "Portable Symmetric Key Container (PSKC)", October 2010

Source of RFC: keyprov (sec)

Section 7 and 11 says:

Section 7:
       <Signature>

Section 11:
               <xs:element name="Signature"
                    type="ds:SignatureType" minOccurs="0"/>

It should say:

Section 7:
       <ds:Signature>

Section 11:
               <xs:element ref="ds:Signature" minOccurs="0"/>

Notes:

It seems the Signature element is in the wrong namespace, making PSKC incompatible with the XMLDsig specification.

There is a thread on this on the XMLSec mailing list:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.text.xml.xmlsec/4178

Both Aleksey Sanin (author of the XMLSec library) and G. Ken Holman (XML
expert) appear to believe this is an error in the XML schema for PSKC:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.text.xml.xmlsec/4178/focus=4181
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.text.xml.xmlsec/4178/focus=4185

This was brought up on the keyprov mailing list:
