I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-smime-ecc-06.txt

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

	Title		: Use of ECC Algorithms in CMS
	Author(s)	: S. Blake-Wilson, D. Brown, P. Lambert
	Filename	: draft-ietf-smime-ecc-06.txt
	Pages		: 16
	Date		: 15-May-01
This document describes how to use Elliptic Curve Cryptography
(ECC) public-key algorithms in the Cryptographic Message Syntax
(CMS).  The ECC algorithms support the creation of digital
signatures and the exchange of keys to encrypt or authenticate
content.  The definition of the algorithm processing is based on
the ANSI X9.62 standard, developed by the ANSI X9F1 working group,
and the IEEE 1363 standard and the SEC 1 standard.  
The readers attention is called to the Intellectual Property Rights

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.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
