An operational model for XML document security is presented. The operational model offers a security mechanism which integrates element-wise encryption and temporal-based element-wise digital structures. The syntax of the encrypted document and the corresponding transformation language are also presented. The document security language (DSL) editor is developed with a friendly graphic user interface to make it easier for users to generate DSL documents.
