Abstract

   This document defines the base syntax for CMC, a Certificate    Management protocol using the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS).    This protocol addresses two immediate needs within the Internet    Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) community:

   1.  The need for an interface to public key certification products        and services based on CMS and PKCS #10 (Public Key Cryptography        Standard), and

   2.  The need for a PKI enrollment protocol for encryption only keys        due to algorithm or hardware design.

   CMC also requires the use of the transport document and the    requirements usage document along with this document for a full    definition.
