Second Last Call: rfc3852 (Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)) to Draft Standard

2009-04-27 10:30:57

The IESG has received a request from the smime WG (smime) to consider 
the following document:

- 'Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) '
  RFC 3852 as a Draft Standard

No technical issues were raised during the first Last Call.  However, the
Last Call failed to highlight two normative references to standards track
documents of lower maturity:  RFCs 3280 and 3281.

This abbreviated Last Call is focused solely on whether downrefs to these
Proposed Standards are appropriate in the context of RFC 3852.

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action.  Please send substantive comments to the
ietf(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org mailing lists by 2009-05-06.   Exceptionally, 
comments may be sent to iesg(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org instead. In either case, 
retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.
