I mixed the rfc numbers up. What I mean was RFC 1847. This is the common framework for MIME security extensions. RFC3156 (which has superseeded rfc2015) is the PGP instance whereas the RFC2630 ff describes the S/MIME instance.

S/MIME - RFC 2632 f OpenPGP - RFC 2440 but a soon to be replaced by draft-ietf-openpgp-rfc2440bis-03.txt PGP/MIME - RFC 3156 PEM - Obsolete (although that RFC1421 ff are still in proposed standard) MOSS - RFC 1848 X.509 - RFC 2510 f -- Werner Koch Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur g10 Code GmbH et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est.
