This draft is a work item of the S/MIME Mail Security Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Electronic Signature Formats for long term electronic
Author(s) : D. Pinkas, J. Ross, N. Pope
Filename : draft-ietf-smime-esformats-02.txt
Pages : 75
Date : 29-Nov-00
The informational RFC 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

The format can be considered as an extension to RFC 2630 [CMS] and RFC
2634 [ESS], where, when appropriate additional signed and unsigned
attributes have been defined.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
