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 NIST FIPS 186-3 for
digital signature, NIST SP800-56A and SEC1 for key agreement, RFC
3370 and RFC 3565 for key wrap and content encryption, NIST FIPS
180-3 for message digest, SEC1 for key derivation, and RFC 2104 and RFC
4231 for message authentication code standards.  This document
obsoletes RFC 3278.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
