Technical Summary This document specifies the conventions for digital signatures on Internet-Drafts. The Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) is used to create a detached signature, which is stored in a separate companion file so that no existing utilities are impacted by the addition of the digital signature. Working Group Summary This document is not the product of any IETF working group. However, the S/MIME Working Group was asked to comment, and the comments that were received were all resolved. Document Quality OpenSSL was used to generate a sample signature file. OpenSSL and at least one other CMS implementation were able to validate the signature.
