Title: CMS Advanced Electronic Signatures (CAdES)
Author: D. Pinkas, N. Pope, J. Ross
Date: March 2008
I-D Tag: draft-ietf-smime-cades-07.txt
This document defines the format of an electronic signature that can
remain valid over long periods. This includes evidence as to its
validity even if the signer or verifying party later attempts to deny
(i.e., repudiates) the validity of the signature.
The format can be considered as an extension to RFC 3852 and
RFC 2634, where, when appropriate, additional signed and
unsigned attributes have been defined.
The contents of this Informational RFC amount to a
