Technical Summary

   This document updates the "Cryptographic Message Syntax Algorithms"
   (RFC3370) and describes the conventions for using the SHAKE family of
   hash functions in the Cryptographic Message Syntax as one-way hash
   functions with the RSA Probabilistic signature and ECDSA signature
   algorithms.  The conventions for the associated signer public keys in
   CMS are also described.

Working Group Summary

    There is consensus for this document in the LAMPS WG.

Document Quality

    S/MIME has wide support, and it depends on the CMS.  A few people
    have expressed interest in using SHAKE in their implementations.

Personnel

    Russ Housley is the document shepherd.
    Roman Danyliw is the responsible area director.
