Hi,

this new version handles the comments from Kenny's review.

Cheers,

Andreas

> Abstract:
>    This note describes the eXtended Merkle Signature Scheme (XMSS), a
>    hash-based digital signature system.  It follows existing
>    descriptions in scientific literature.  The note specifies the WOTS+
>    one-time signature scheme, a single-tree (XMSS) and a multi-tree
>    variant (XMSS^MT) of XMSS.  Both variants use WOTS+ as a main
>    building block.  XMSS provides cryptographic digital signatures
>    without relying on the conjectured hardness of mathematical problems.
>    Instead, it is proven that it only relies on the properties of
>    cryptographic hash functions.  XMSS provides strong security
>    guarantees and is even secure when the collision resistance of the
>    underlying hash function is broken.  It is suitable for compact
>    implementations, relatively simple to implement, and naturally
>    resists side-channel attacks.  Unlike most other signature systems,
>    hash-based signatures can withstand attacks using quantum computers.
