Use of Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) Algorithms in Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)
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, the IEEE 1363 standard, and
the SEC 1 standard.
Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) Version 3.2 Message Specification
This document defines Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions
(S/MIME) version 3.2. S/MIME provides a consistent way to send and
receive secure MIME data. Digital signatures provide authentication,
message integrity, and non-repudiation with proof of origin. Encryption provides data confidentiality. Compression can be used to
reduce data size. This document obsoletes RFC 3851.
