Technical Summary This ID contains algorithm identifiers for use with CMS. It includes the OIDs for the following digest algorithms: SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512. It also includes the OIDs for the following signature algorithms: DSA with SHA-224 and SHA-256; RSA with SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512; RSA-KEM; ECDSA with SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512. Working Group Summary This ID was lightly discussed on the mailing list. It basically just lists OIDs so there's not much to discuss. Document Quality Some of the OIDs in this ID have been implemented by many. Some of the other OIDs are included for completeness. Personnel Blake Ramsdell is the document Shepherd. Tim Polk is the responsible Security Area AD. RFC Editor Note Please make the following substitution in section 2.1: OLD The parameters are as specified in Section 2.
