Technical Summary

This document defines a profile for the algorithm and key size to be
used for signatures applied to certificates, Certificate Revocation
Lists, and signed objects in the context of the Resource Public Key
Infrastructure.

Working Group Summary

The profile for algorithm and key size was originally part of the
certificate profile.  The working group realized that this information
might be used in other drafts as well, so for ease of reference a
separate document was produced.  Furthermore, using a separate document
for this profile means that future changes in the algorithm requirements
will no longer require a revision to the referring documents.

Document Quality

This document is well written and clear.  Although this profile
does not define a protocol, several independent implementations of the
certificate profile exist, which would also involve implementing this
algorithm profile, indicating careful review.
