Abstract

Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) defined the Content-Type "application/pkcs7-mime" and the parameter "smime-type", along with four valid values for the parameter [RFC3851]. Certificate Management over CMS (CMC) added two new parameter values [RFC5273]. [RFC5751] replaced RFC 3851 and registered the application/pkcs7-mime media type, but did not create a registry for the smime-type values.

          Creation of a Registry for smime-type Parameter Values

Abstract

   Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) defined the    Content-Type parameter "smime-type".  As the list of defined values    for that parameter has increased, it has become clear that a registry    is needed to document these values.  This document creates the    registry, registers the current values, and specifies the policies    for registration of new values.
