     Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite Profile of
                    Certificate Management over CMS
                   draft-jenkins-cnsa-cmc-profile-00

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.  This profile is a refinement of RFCs 5272,
   5273, and 5274.

1.  Introduction

   This document specifies a profile of the Certificate Management over
   CMS (CMC) protocol to comply with the United States National Security
   Agency's Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite
   [CNSSP15].  CMC is defined in [RFC5272], [RFC5273], and [RFC5274],
   and is updated by [RFC6402].  This document profiles CMC to manage
   X.509 public key certificates in compliance with the CNSA Suite
   Certificate and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile
   [ID.cnsa-cert-profile].  This document specifically focuses on
   defining CMC interactions for both initial enrollment and rekey of
   CNSA Suite public key certificates between a client and a
