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           : Wrapping an HMAC key with a Triple-DES Key or an AES 
                          Key
        Author(s)       : J. Schaad, R. Housley
        Filename        : draft-ietf-smime-hmac-key-wrap-00.txt
        Pages           : 8
        Date            : 06-Feb-02
        
The key wrap algorithms defined in [3DES-WRAP] and [AES-WRAP] cover 
the of wrapping a Triple-DES key with another Triple-DES key and 
wrapping an AES key with another AES key, respectively.  This 
document specifies two similar mechanisms.  One specifies the 
mechanism for wrapping an HMAC key with a Triple-DES key, and the 
other specifies the mechanism for wrapping an HMAC key with an AES 
key.

In the body type:

NOTE:   The mail server at ietf.org 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.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
Internet-Draft.
