Mandatory to Implement Algorithms

2001-03-22 13:00:04
Dear Working Group:

At the face-to-face S/MIME WG meeting yesterday, we came to consensus on a new set of mandatory to implement algorithms. The people present overwhelmingly agreed on the following:

        Encryption:     Triple-DES

        Key Mgmt:       RSA (using PKCS #1 v1.5)

        Msg Digest:     SHA-1

        Signature:      DSA and RSA  (using PKCS #1 v1.5)

On signature, we will require that implementations are able to verify signatures on certificates and messages using both algorithms; however, implementations are required to generates signatures on messages using at least one of the signature algorithms.
