Dear S/MIME WG:
Yes, we are making another round of updates to CMS. I expect them
to be very minor. The changes are described in Section 1.2, which
This document obsoletes RFC 3369 [CMS2]. As discussed above, RFC
3369 introduced an extension mechanism to support new key management
schemes without further changes to the CMS. This document introduces
a similar extension mechanism to support additional certificate
formats for the verification of digital signatures without further
changes to the CMS. Backward compatibility with both RFC 2630 and
RFC 3369 is preserved.
Maybe I'm being blind, but *where* is that extension mechanism
introduced in the new document? Listing it explicitly in this
introductory material would help the reader (or at least me...).
