     Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite Profile of
                    Certificate Management over CMS
                   draft-jenkins-cnsa-cmc-profile-01

Abstract

   The United States government has published the NSA Commercial
   National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite, which defines cryptographic
   algorithm policy for national security applications.  This document
   specifies a profile of the Certificate Management over CMS (CMC)
   protocol for managing X.509 public key certificates in applications
   using the CNSA Suite.  It is a refinement of RFCs 5272, 5273, and
   5274.  The profile applies to the capabilities, configuration, and
   operation of all components of US National Security Systems that
   manage X.509 public key certificates over CMS.  US National Security
   Systems are described in NIST Special Publication SP-800-59.  It is
   also appropriate for all other US Government systems that process
   high-value information.  It is made publicly available for use by
   developers and operators of these and any other system deployments.
