This document defines the syntax for two Cryptographic Message Syntax
(CMS) content types: one for key package receipts and another for
key package errors.  The key package receipt content type is used to
confirm receipt of an identified key package or collection of key
packages.  The key package error content type is used to indicate an
error occurred during the processing of a key package.  CMS can be
used to digitally sign, digest, authenticate, or encrypt these
content types.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
