Technical Summary Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) defined the Content-Type parameter "smime-type". As the list of defined values for that parameter has increased, it has become clear that a registry is needed to document those values. This document creates that registry, registers the current values, and specifies the policies for registration of new values. Working Group Summary This is not the product of a WG, but it has been discussed on the SAAG mailing list. Document Quality The document is rather self explanatory. It came out of Barry Leiba's IESG review of another document. Personnel Alexey Melnikov the Shepherd. Sean Turner is the Responsible AD. RFC Editor Note In the IANA Considerations, please change "RFC Required" to "Specification Required". IANA Note Please note that the registration policy is changing from "RFC Required" to "Specification Required".
