Spasm -- This is a venue for discussion of doing Some Pkix And SMime (spasm) work.


About Spasm
English (USA)

A number of extensions to work previously done in PKIX and SMIME have been proposed. The spasm list is a venue for discussion doing Some Pkix And SMime work and may lead to chartering a working group for these items. The intent is that items that can be adopted by the putative working group will be: a) sane b) very likely to be implemented and c) have a reasonable likelihood of being deployed, to the extent we can tell. The putative working group would likely have a quite constrained initial charter (specific to a small number of drafts meeting the above criteria) and would need to re-charter before taking on any new work items.
