Last Call Review of draft-turner-asymmetrickeyformat-
I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the
IESG. These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the
security area directors. Document editors and WG chairs should treat
these comments just like any other last call comments.
This document defines the syntax for private key information and a
content type for it. Private-key information includes a private key
for a specified public-key algorithm and a set of attributes. The
Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS), as defined in RFC 5652, can be
used to digitally sign, digest, authenticate, or encrypt the
asymmetric key format content type. This document obsoletes RFC
In particular this document describes extensions to existing protocols
to encode and transfer public and private asymmetric key information.
I find no additional issues with this document.
