Technical Summary

   This document specifies a way of mixing a pre-shared key into the
   output of key transport and key agreement algorithms used as part
   of messages encoding using Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS).
   This is a mechanism that can be used today that will protect against
   message decryption by future adversaries once cryptographically
   relevant quantum computers become available.  This bridges the gap
   until quantum-safe key transport and key agreement algorithms are
   available.
