And the other shoe drops. I've updated the S/MIME draft and submitted it to
the Internet Drafts editor. The draft is available at
<http://www.imc.org/draft-dusse-smime-msg>. The changes are:
Changed the "FOO" from the previous draft back to RC2 and gave a
reference to the Internet Draft describing it. Added back the
OIDs for RC2 in Appendix A.
All of section 3 was completely replaced.
Updated the reference section to point to Internet Drafts for PKCS
Removed the reference to PKCS #9 in 2.5.1 by stating the syntax.
Removed signedAndEnveloped from the draft.
There are still many open issues. Further, no one has been paying much
attention to the -cert document, although certificates have proven to be
problematic for S/MIME developers. Comments on that draft are still
