     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.

 1.  Introduction

   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.
