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           : AES Key Wrap Algorithm
        Author(s)       : J. Schaad, R. Housley
        Filename        : draft-ietf-smime-aes-keywrap-00.txt
        Pages           : 36
        Date            : 06-Feb-02
The purpose of this document is to make the AES Key Wrap algorithm 
conveniently available to the Internet community.  The United States 
of America has adopted AES as the new encryption standard.  The AES 
Key Wrap algorithm will probably be adopted by the USA for 
encryption of AES keys.  The authors took most of the text in this 
document from the draft AES Key Wrap posted by NIST.

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
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
