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.
