Title : Password-based Encryption for S/MIME
Author(s) : P. Gutmann
Filename : draft-ietf-smime-password-02.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 10-Mar-00
The Cryptographic Message Syntax data format doesn't currently contain
any provisions for password-based data encryption. This document
provides a method of encrypting data using user-supplied passwords and,
by extension, any form of variable-length keying material which isn't
necessarily an algorithm-specific fixed-format key.
