Title : Triple-DES and RC2 Key Wrapping
Author(s) : R. Housley
Filename : draft-ietf-smime-key-wrap-01.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 18-Sep-01
This document specifies the algorithm for wrapping one Triple-DES
[3DES] key with another Triple-DES key and the algorithm for wrapping
one RC2 [RC2] key with another RC2 key. These key wrap algorithms
were originally published in section 12.6 of RFC 2630 [CMS]. They
are republished since these key wrap algorithms have been found to be
useful in contexts beyond those supported by RFC 2630.

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
