In general, certificates need not be communicated with communication or
storage media that are integrity-secure or authentic. This is because
certificates are digitally signed and users are expected to validate the
signatures using configured trust anchors. However, distribution of
trust anchor certificates, or distribution of self-signed end-entity
certificates, requires a mechanism for establishing the authenticity of
the public key contained in such certificates.

In the body type:

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
Internet-Draft.
