The IESG has received a request from the S/MIME Mail Security WG (smime)
to consider the following document:
- 'Use of the RSA-KEM Key Transport Algorithm in CMS '
<draft-ietf-smime-cms-rsa-kem-11.txt> as a Proposed Standard
This is a second Last Call, and focuses on two normative references to
Informational RFCs that were not explicitly identified in the first Last Call.
The draft includes normative references to:
* RFC 3217, "Triple-DES and RC2 Key Wrapping", and
* RFC 3394, "Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Key Wrap Algorithm"
The IESG would like to determine whether the community believes these
documents are an appropriate reference for a standards track document
in spit of the lower maturity level.
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 2010-03-11. 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.
