A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
This draft is a work item of the S/MIME Mail Security Working Group of the IETF.

        Title           : Multiple Signatures in S/MIME
        Author(s)       : S. Turner, J. Schaad
        Filename        : draft-ietf-smime-multisig-05.txt
        Pages           : 20
        Date            : 2008-3-11
Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) SignedData includes the SignerInfo 
   structure to convey per-signer information. SignedData supports 
   multiple signers and multiple signature algorithms per-signer with 
   multiple SignerInfo structures. If a signer attaches more than one 
   SignerInfo, there are concerns that an attacker could perform a 
   downgrade attack by removing the SignerInfo(s) with the 'strong' 
algorithm(s). This document defines the multiple-signatures 
   attribute, its generation rules, and its processing rules to allow 
   signers to convey multiple SignerInfo while protecting against 
   downgrade attacks. Additionally, this attribute may assist during 
   periods of algorithm migration.
