Technical Summary This document defines a set of S/MIME Capability types for ASN.1 encoding for the current set of public key algorithms identified in the PKIX working group. This enables a requester to specify information on the public keys and signature algorithms to be used in responses. An example of where this is used is the OCSP Agility draft. Working Group Summary There were no significant issues about the document that were raised during the WG process, as such the changes represent the consensus of the active participants on the document Document Quality No known implementations of the work currently exist. The author does not know if there has been any active work in getting the algorithm agility work for OCSP rolled out. Personnel Document Shepherd: Stephen Kent. Responsible Area Director: Sean Turner.
