This document describes the conventions for using the Secure Hash
Algorithm (SHA) message digest algorithms (SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384,
SHA-512) with the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS).  It also
describes the conventions for using these algorithms with the CMS
and the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA), Rivest Shamir Adleman
(RSA), and Elliptic Curve DSA (ECDSA) signature algorithms.  Further,
it provides SMIMECapabilities attribute values for each algorithm.  

This document is a product of the S/MIME Mail Security Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
