Additional New ASN.1 Modules for the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)
          and the Public Key Infrastructure Using X.509 (PKIX)

Abstract

   The Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) format, and many associated
   formats, are expressed using ASN.1.  The current ASN.1 modules
   conform to the 1988 version of ASN.1.  This document updates some
   auxiliary ASN.1 modules to conform to the 2008 version of ASN.1; the
   1988 ASN.1 modules remain the normative version.  There are no bits-
   on-the-wire changes to any of the formats; this is simply a change to
   the syntax.
