Abstract

   This document describes the conventions for using the RSAES-OAEP key
   transport algorithm with the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS).  The
   CMS specifies the enveloped-data content type, which consists of an
   encrypted content and encrypted content-encryption keys for one or
   more recipients.  The RSAES-OAEP key transport algorithm can be used
   to encrypt content-encryption keys for intended recipients.
