This document defines a set of Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail
Extensions (S/MIME) Capability types for ASN.1 encoding for the
current set of public keys defined by the PKIX working group.  This
facilitates the ability for a requester to specify information on the
public keys and signature algorithms to be used in responses.
"Online Certificate Status Protocol Algorithm Agility" (RFC 6277)
details an example of where this is used.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the Public-Key Infrastructure (X.509) Working Group of the IETF.
