Survey on XML encryption

Sah, S K (2014) Survey on XML encryption. MTech thesis.



Every transaction on the Internet involves some kind of data. Data can be transferred in various modes. Now a days, XML is widely used for transferring and storing the data. There must be some mechanism to protect these data. In most of the literature, two most important techniques i.e. XML Signature and XML Encryption are used for securing these XML data. These two techniques provide signing and encrypting of XML data using cryptographic functionalities and results are also represented in XML format. These two techniques are con- sidered as standard worldwide which is released by W3C. In this thesis we are focusing on XML Encryption. In this study, W3C standards are used to encrypt sensitive XML data. JavaScript has been used to implement encryption of XML data and "Node.js" as software platform for providing the environment for encrypting. In this study, time elapsed is also measured in case of encryption and decryption. We have used AES and Triple DES algorithm for encryption of XML data. For encryption of symmetric key, RSA is used. Library used is "xml-encryption" for encryption and decryption. Time analysis for encryption and decryption are also shown by graph.
