This specification defines a profile for the use of X.509 Attribute
Certificates in Internet Protocols.  Attribute certificates may be
used in a wide range of applications and environments covering a
broad spectrum of interoperability goals and a broader spectrum of
operational and assurance requirements.  The goal of this document is
to establish a common baseline for generic applications requiring
broad interoperability as well as limited special purpose
requirements.  The profile places emphasis on attribute certificate
support for Internet electronic mail, IPsec, and WWW security
applications.  This document obsoletes RFC 3281.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
