A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
 This draft is a work item of the Javascript Object Signing and Encryption Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : Use Cases and Requirements for JSON Object Signing and Encryption (JOSE)
	Author(s)       : Richard Barnes
	Filename        : draft-ietf-jose-use-cases-03.txt
	Pages           : 25

   Many Internet applications have a need for object-based security
   mechanisms in addition to security mechanisms at the network layer or
   transport layer.  In the past, the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS)
   has provided a binary secure object format based on ASN.1.  Over
   time, the use of binary object encodings such as ASN.1 has been
   overtaken by text-based encodings, for example JavaScript Object
   Notation.  This document defines a set of use cases and requirements
   for a secure object format encoded using JavaScript Object Notation
   (JSON), drawn from a variety of application security mechanisms
   currently in development.
