At yesterday's SMIME session at the London IETF, it was suggested that
NIST extend the deadline for comments on the Draft NIST S/MIME V3 Client
Profile. Also, it was suggested that this notice be sent to the PKIX list
as well as the SMIME list. Thus, I am resending the announcement sent out
by Tim Polk on Monday, 2 July 2001 to the SMIME list. The deadline for
comments has been extended until 17 September 2001.
---------Original Message Sent by Tim Polk to SMIME List on 2 July---------
I have attached below the announcement for a recently released NIST draft
document concerning S/MIME V3. The document is intended to define an
appropriate subset of the S/MIME standards for broad application in the U.S.
Federal Government. NIST will be supporting this document through the
development of an automated conformance testing tool. We hope the deployment
of this tool will ease the development of conformant S/MIME V3 clients!
We are very interested in comments from both developers and the user
community. Please take the time to review the draft profile and NIST's plans
for the automated testing facility. We would appreciate comments on the
profile by 17 August 2001 (now extended to 17 September). Please send
comments to Mike Chernick (NIST's S/MIME project leader) at <chernick <at> nist.gov>.
BTW, Mike will be presenting an overview of this project in the S/MIME WG
