#7: Algorithm identifiers/parameters incompatible with WebCrypto


Comment (by michael.jones@microsoft.com):

 I believe that the consensus call to represent JOSE algorithms as simple
 strings, as recorded at http://www.ietf.org/mail-
 archive/web/jose/current/msg01219.html, is pertinent here.

 W3C WebCrypto is free to use different representations, should they
 choose.  It's a different level of specification than JOSE, as explicitly
 recognized by the WebCrypto high-level/low-level distinction.  It's not
 necessarily appropriate that the low-level algorithm identifiers be the
 same as those in the high-level spec, where simplifying assumptions are
 intentially being made.

 In any event, I don't believe that this is an issue that JOSE needs to
 solve.  I'd suggest that it be filed in the W3C WebCrypto issue tracker
 instead, if you'd like to see it be resolved.
