Technical Summary This document specifies the conventions for using the United States National Security Agency's Suite B algorithms in Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME). By specifying the use of Suite B in S/MIME and the underlying Cryptographic Message Syntax structures (i.e, the signed-data and the enveloped-data content types), this specification supports interopable deployment of IETF protocols to new user communities. Working Group Summary ID publication was posted on the S/MIME working group list, but there was no discussion in the list. The technical content is a straightforward application of the Suite B cryptographic Suite to the S/MIME specifications, and was not perceived to be controversial. Protocol Quality Tim Polk reviewed this specification for the IESG.
