Common e-commerce framework specifications such as
eCo, ebXML have adopted XML technology to exchange
business documents between e-business applications..
In such common e-commerce framework environment,
the e-business applications exchange XML documents
describing business operations and information to do
The XML-based e-business applications have to provide
an XML digital signature service to protect property of
users since digital signature acts of many countries
recommend that only the trade through e-business system
supporting a digital signature can be protected by law.
So, XML digital signature in the XML-based e-business
applications is not optional but mandatory.
In this paper, we suggest a different method than one
suggested in the reference  to implement an XML
digital signature software package that provides integrity
of the business document, authentication of trading
partner and non-repudiation services, which are necessary
for e-business. The XML digital signature package has
been implemented according to the “XML digital
signature syntax and processing” specification  of the
IETF/W3C XML Signature Working Group.
