        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.
