This document describes the Data At Rest Encryption (DARE) Envelope and Sequence syntax. The DARE Envelope syntax is used to digitally sign, digest, authenticate, or encrypt arbitrary content data. The DARE Sequence syntax describes an append-only sequence of entries, each containing a DARE Envelope. DARE Sequences may support cryptographic integrity verification of the entire data container content by means of a Merkle tree. [Note to Readers] Discussion of this draft takes place on the MATHMESH mailing list (, which is archived at This document is also available online at
