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.
