I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's 
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the 
IESG.  These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the 
security area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat 
these comments just like any other last call comments.

draft-housley-rfc5008bis-00 obsoletes RFC 5008 which defines suite B algorithms for use in S/MIME.   

I don't see any issues with the contents of the document or the security considerations section.
