Elliptic Curve Algorithms for Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) Encrypted Key Package Content Type
This document describes the conventions for using several Elliptic Curve cryptographic algorithms with the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) encrypted key package content type. Specifically, it includes conventions necessary to implement Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) with EnvelopedData and Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) with SignedData. This document extends RFC 6033.

RFC 6161 EC Algorithms for CMS Encrypted Key Packages April 2011
This document describes the conventions for using Elliptic Curve cryptographic algorithms with the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) encrypted key package content type [RFC6032]. Specifically, it includes conventions necessary to implement the following CMS content types: EnvelopedData [RFC5652] and SignedData [RFC5652]. This document amends [RFC6033]. Familiarity with [RFC6033] and [RFC5753] is assumed.
