Technical Summary The document defines a new set of attributes to disambiguate overloaded using of the PKCS #9 challengePassword attribute. The new attributes retain the structure of the existing attribute but are identified by new object identifiers. Working Group Summary The document was discussed on the PKIX mailing list. Since the PKIX working group is no longer active, this document is proceeding as an individual submission. Document Quality There are no fielded implementations yet, but at least one is in development. Other vendors have expressed interest. The lack of existing implementations is not a cause for concern due to the nature of the document, which is essentially defining a few new object identifiers. The Document Shepherd is Russ Housley. The responsible Area Director is Stephen Farrell.
