The IESG has received a request from the Limited Additional Mechanisms for PKIX and SMIME WG (lamps) to consider the following document: - 'Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) Version 4.0 Message Specification' <draft-ietf-lamps-rfc5751-bis-07.txt> as Proposed Standard
The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the i...@ietf.org mailing lists by 2018-04-27. Exceptionally, comments may be sent to i...@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting. Abstract This document defines Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) version 4.0. 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 5751. The file can be obtained via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-lamps-rfc5751-bis/ IESG discussion can be tracked via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-lamps-rfc5751-bis/ballot/ No IPR declarations have been submitted directly on this I-D.
