This draft is a work item of the S/MIME Mail Security Working Group of the IETF.

        Title           : Cryptographic Message Syntax
        Author(s)       : R. Housley
        Filename        : draft-ietf-smime-cms-04.txt

   This document describes the Cryptographic Message Syntax.  This
   syntax is used to digitally sign, digest, authenticate, or encrypt
   arbitrary messages.
   The Cryptographic Message Syntax is derived from PKCS #7 version 1.5.
   Wherever possible, backward compatibility is preserved; however,
   changes were necessary to accommodate attribute certificate transfer
   and key agreement techniques for key management.

NOTE:   The mail server at can return the document in
        MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
