This document defines a Certificate Management protocol using CMS (CMC). This protocol addresses two immediate needs within the Internet PKI community: 1. The need for an interface to public key certification products and services based on [CMS] and [PKCS10], and 2. The need in [SMIMEV3] for a certificate enrollment protocol for DSA-signed certificates with Diffie-Hellman public keys. A small number of additional services are defined to supplement the core certificate request service.
