A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the S/MIME Mail Security Working Group of the IETF.

        Title           : Use of the CAST-128 Encryption Algorithm in CMS
        Author(s)       : C. Adams
        Filename        : draft-ietf-smime-cast-128-01.txt
        Pages           : 6

This document specifies how to incorporate CAST-128 [RFC2144] into
the S/MIME Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) as an additional
algorithm for symmetric encryption.  The relevant OIDs and processing
steps are provided so that CAST-128 may be included in the CMS
specification [RFC2630] for symmetric content and key encryption.

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
