Re: EntityIdentifier Definition

You are correct.  EntityIdentifier used to be defined in CMS but was deleted
when the RecipientInfo syntax was changed.  I believe that the ESS ASN.1
module should directly include EntityIdentifier as follows:

EntityIdentifier ::= CHOICE {
  issuerAndSerialNumber IssuerAndSerialNumber,
  subjectKeyIdentifier SubjectKeyIdentifier }   
The ESS ASN.1 module should also be changed so that it no longer imports
EntityIdentifier from CMS.  Instead, it should import IssuerAndSerialNumber
from CMS.

Enhanced Security Services for S/MIME I-D rev. 7 identifies an attribute

[CMS] rev. 6.  Perhaps I've missed it but I've been through both drafts
several times.  Any help will be appreciated.

Warmest Regards...
