Signing and encrypting are two different things. 100% REST systems could
of course use public-key signing. I don't know what non-repudiable
disclosure means. If I have the information, encrypt it, and you decrypt
it then how can anyone know, when those bits show up somewhere on
Gnutella, who exposed it? Sounds like DRM. ;)

Come discuss XML and REST web services at:
