[smime] Fwd: I-D Action: draft-melnikov-smime-msa-to-mda-02.txt

I've posted a new version of the document describing how MSA/MTA can sign/encrypt messages with S/MIME. This is effectively an update to Experimental RFC 3183. Changes from RFC 3183 are:

1) The draft only includes domain signatures from RFC 3183 (i.e. Additional Attributes Signatures and Review Signatures are not mentioned). 2) Naming conventions for X.509 certificates were simplified. Unlike RFC 3183, subject names of domain signing/encrypting X.509 certificates don't have to have a specific form. But Subject Alternative Names need to include URIs for domain being protected.
3) Incorporated erratum 3757 resolution.
4) Updated references and some minor editorial corrections.

I would be happy to hear comments/see reviews of the draft.

Thank you,
