The document describes an experiment to determine if any current
implementers have dealt with a new class of hash algorithms which are not
currently deployed. In order to do this a new hash algorithm w/
parameters is defined for use with this experiment and some examples of
the use of the new hash algorithm are included in the document.
Working Group Summary
The S/MIME working group did not consider adopting the document as it was
considered to be esoteric and the working group was planning to shut down
soon. There were no interesting issues discussed on the document.
One implementation of the system exists by the author of the document. No
other known implementations exist. I would not expect people to consider
looking at the document seriously until a serious contender for a hash
algorithm with parameters is presented to the community.
Jim Schaad (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Document Shepherd.
