4. Though a relatively new feature, both the X12 and EDIFACT standards
have provisions for digital signatures and encryption of EDI
transactions within the EDI envelope. It would be redundant to develop
separate mechanisms for these purposes in the mime body part.
On the other hand, there is a need for digital signatures and
encryption of non-EDI bodyparts as well. Therefor, it would be
redundant to develop separate mechanisms for these purposes for
the EDI bodypart.
Is it possible to converge the X12/EDIFACT stuff with the output
of the PEM crew, so we only have to do this *ONCE* and cover
everybody? Alternatively, if the PEM scheme provides sufficient
functionality, should there be a switch variable someplace that
allows the option of using the PEM or EDIFACT scheme?
