    authenticated encryption, increased RSA key sizes, moving old
    cryptographic algorithms to historic status, and requiring support
    for AES-256 GCM, ChaCha200-Poly1305, SHA-512, ECDSA with P-256,
    EdDSA, and Ed25519.

  Working Group Summary:

    There is strong consensus for this document in the LAMPS WG.

  Document Quality:

    S/MIME has wide support, and several implementers have said that
    they will implement the new features in this document.

  Personnel:
