4.  AuthenticatedData and AuthEnvelopedData Using ECC

   This section describes how to use ECC algorithms with the CMS
   AuthenticatedData format.  AuthenticatedData lacks non-repudiation,
   and so in some instances is preferable to SignedData.  (For example,
   the sending agent might not want the message to be authenticated when
   forwarded.)

   This section also describes how to use ECC algorithms with the CMS
   AuthEnvelopedData format [CMS-AUTHENV].  AuthEnvelopedData supports
   authentication and encryption, and in some instances is preferable to
   signing and then encrypting data.

   For both AuthenticatedData and AuthEnvelopedData, data origin
   authentication with 1-Pass ECMQV can only be provided when there is
   one and only one recipient.  When there are multiple recipients, an
   attack is possible where one recipient modifies the content without
   other recipients noticing [BON].  A sending agent who is concerned
   with such an attack SHOULD use a separate AuthenticatedData or
   AuthEnvelopedData for each recipient.

   Using an algorithm with the sender static key pair allows for
   knowledge of the message creator; this means that authentication can,
   in some circumstances, be obtained for AuthEnvelopedData and
   AuthenticatedData.  This means that 1-Pass ECMQV can be a common
   algorithm for EnvelopedData, AuthenticatedData, and AuthEnvelopedData
   while ECDH can only be used in EnvelopedData.

4.1.  AuthenticatedData Using 1-Pass ECMQV

   This section describes how to use the 1-Pass ECMQV key agreement
   algorithm with AuthenticatedData.  ECMQV is method C(1, 2, ECC MQV)
   from [SP800-56A].

   When using ECMQV with AuthenticatedData, the fields of
   AuthenticatedData are as in [CMS], but with the following
   restrictions:

   - macAlgorithm MUST contain the algorithm identifier of the message
     authentication code (MAC) algorithm (see Section 7.1.7), which MUST
     be one of the following: hmac-SHA1, id-hmacWITHSHA224, id-
     hmacWITHSHA256, id-hmacWITHSHA384, or id-hmacWITHSHA512.

   - digestAlgorithm MUST contain the algorithm identifier of the hash
     algorithm (see Section 7.1.1), which MUST be one of the following:
     id-sha1, id-sha224, id-sha256, id-sha384, or id-sha512.

Top      Up      ToC       Page 12 
   As 1-Pass ECMQV is a key agreement algorithm, the RecipientInfo kari
   choice is used in the AuthenticatedData.  When using 1-Pass ECMQV,
   the AuthenticatedData originatorInfo field MAY include the
   certificate(s) for the EC public key(s) used in the formation of the
   pairwise key.  ECC certificates are discussed in Section 5.

4.1.1.  Fields of the KeyAgreeRecipientInfo

   The AuthenticatedData KeyAgreeRecipientInfo fields are used in the
   same manner as the fields for the corresponding EnvelopedData
   KeyAgreeRecipientInfo fields of Section 3.2.1 of this document.

4.1.2.  Actions of the Sending Agent

   The sending agent uses the same actions as for EnvelopedData with
   1-Pass ECMQV, as specified in Section 3.2.2 of this document.

   In a single message, if there are multiple layers for a recipient,
   then the ephemeral public key can be reused by the originator for
   that recipient in each of the different layers.

4.1.3.  Actions of the Receiving Agent

   The receiving agent uses the same actions as for EnvelopedData with
   1-Pass ECMQV, as specified in Section 3.2.3 of this document.

4.2.  AuthEnvelopedData Using 1-Pass ECMQV

   This section describes how to use the 1-Pass ECMQV key agreement
   algorithm with AuthEnvelopedData.  ECMQV is method C(1, 2, ECC MQV)
   from [SP800-56A].

   When using ECMQV with AuthEnvelopedData, the fields of
   AuthEnvelopedData are as in [CMS-AUTHENV].

   As 1-Pass ECMQV is a key agreement algorithm, the RecipientInfo kari
   choice is used.  When using 1-Pass ECMQV, the AuthEnvelopedData
   originatorInfo field MAY include the certificate(s) for the EC public
   key used in the formation of the pairwise key.  ECC certificates are
   discussed in Section 5.

4.2.1.  Fields of the KeyAgreeRecipientInfo

   The AuthEnvelopedData KeyAgreeRecipientInfo fields are used in the
   same manner as the fields for the corresponding EnvelopedData
   KeyAgreeRecipientInfo fields of Section 3.2.1 of this document.

4.2.2.  Actions of the Sending Agent

   The sending agent uses the same actions as for EnvelopedData with
   1-Pass ECMQV, as specified in Section 3.2.2 of this document.

   In a single message, if there are multiple layers for a recipient,
   then the ephemeral public key can be reused by the originator for
   that recipient in each of the different layers.

4.2.3.  Actions of the Receiving Agent

   The receiving agent uses the same actions as for EnvelopedData with
   1-Pass ECMQV, as specified in Section 3.2.3 of this document.

5.  Certificates Using ECC

   Internet X.509 certificates [PKI] can be used in conjunction with
   this specification to distribute agents' public keys.  The use of ECC
   algorithms and keys within X.509 certificates is specified in
   [PKI-ALG].

6.  SMIMECapabilities Attribute and ECC

   A sending agent MAY announce to receiving agents that it supports one
   or more of the ECC algorithms specified in this document by using the
   SMIMECapabilities signed attribute [MSG] in either a signed message
   or a certificate [CERTCAP].

   The SMIMECapabilities attribute value indicates support for one of
   the ECDSA signature algorithms in a SEQUENCE with the capabilityID
   field containing the object identifier ecdsa-with-SHA1 with NULL
   parameters and ecdsa-with-SHA* (where * is 224, 256, 384, or 512)
   with absent parameters.  The DER encodings are:

      ecdsa-with-SHA1:   30 0b 06 07 2a 86 48 ce 3d 04 01 05 00

      ecdsa-with-SHA224: 30 0a 06 08 2a 86 48 ce 3d 04 03 01

      ecdsa-with-SHA256: 30 0a 06 08 2a 86 48 ce 3d 04 03 02

      ecdsa-with-SHA384: 30 0a 06 08 2a 86 48 ce 3d 04 03 03

      ecdsa-with-SHA512: 30 0a 06 08 2a 86 48 ce 3d 04 03 04

   NOTE: The SMIMECapabilities attribute indicates that parameters for
   ECDSA with SHA-1 are NULL; however, the parameters are absent when
   used to generate a digital signature.

   The SMIMECapabilities attribute value indicates support for

      a)  the standard ECDH key agreement algorithm,
      b)  the cofactor ECDH key agreement algorithm, or
      c)  the 1-Pass ECMQV key agreement algorithm and

   is a SEQUENCE with the capabilityID field containing the object
   identifier

      a)  dhSinglePass-stdDH-sha*kdf-scheme,
      b)  dhSinglePass-cofactorDH-sha*kdf-scheme, or
      c)  mqvSinglePass-sha*kdf-scheme

   respectively (where * is 1, 224, 256, 384, or 512) with the
   parameters present.  The parameters indicate the supported key-
   encryption algorithm with the KeyWrapAlgorithm algorithm identifier.

   The DER encodings that indicate capabilities are as follows (KA is
   key agreement, KDF is key derivation function, and Wrap is key wrap
   algorithm):

7.  ASN.1 Syntax

   The ASN.1 syntax [X.680], [X.681], [X.682], [X.683] used in this
   document is gathered in this section for reference purposes.

7.1.  Algorithm Identifiers

   This section provides the object identifiers for the algorithms used
   in this document along with any associated parameters.

7.1.1.  Digest Algorithms

   Digest algorithm object identifiers are used in the SignedData
   digestAlgorithms and digestAlgorithm fields and the AuthenticatedData
   digestAlgorithm field.  The digest algorithms used in this document
   are SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512.  The object
   identifiers and parameters associated with these algorithms are found
   in [CMS-ALG] and [CMS-SHA2].

7.1.2.  Originator Public Key

   The KeyAgreeRecipientInfo originator field uses the following object
   identifier to indicate an elliptic curve public key:

      id-ecPublicKey OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        ansi-x9-62 keyType(2) 1 }

   where

      ansi-x9-62 OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) 10045 }

   When the object identifier id-ecPublicKey is used here with an
   algorithm identifier, the associated parameters MUST be either absent
   or ECParameters.  Implementations MUST accept id-ecPublicKey with
   absent and ECParameters parameters.  If ECParameters is present, its

Top      Up      ToC       Page 22 
   value MUST match the recipient's ECParameters.  Implementations
   SHOULD generate absent parameters for the id-ecPublicKey object
   identifier in the KeyAgreeRecipientInfo originator field.

   [CMS-ECC] indicated the parameters were NULL.  Support for this
   legacy form is OPTIONAL.

7.1.3.  Signature Algorithms

   Signature algorithm identifiers are used in the SignedData
   signatureAlgorithm and signature fields.  The signature algorithms
   used in this document are ECDSA with SHA-1, ECDSA with SHA-224, ECDSA
   with SHA-256, ECDSA with SHA-384, and ECDSA with SHA-512.  The object
   identifiers and parameters associated with these algorithms are found
   in [PKI-ALG].

   [CMS-ECC] indicated the parameters were NULL.  Support for this
   legacy form is OPTIONAL.

7.1.4.  Key Agreement Algorithms

   Key agreement algorithms are used in EnvelopedData,
   AuthenticatedData, and AuthEnvelopedData in the KeyAgreeRecipientInfo
   keyEncryptionAlgorithm field.  The following object identifiers
   indicate the key agreement algorithms used in this document
   [SP800-56A], [SEC1]:

      dhSinglePass-stdDH-sha1kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        x9-63-scheme 2 }

      dhSinglePass-stdDH-sha224kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 11 0 }

      dhSinglePass-stdDH-sha256kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 11 1 }

      dhSinglePass-stdDH-sha384kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 11 2 }

      dhSinglePass-stdDH-sha512kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 11 3 }

      dhSinglePass-cofactorDH-sha1kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        x9-63-scheme 3 }

      dhSinglePass-cofactorDH-sha224kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 14 0 }

Top      Up      ToC       Page 23 
      dhSinglePass-cofactorDH-sha256kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 14 1 }

      dhSinglePass-cofactorDH-sha384kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 14 2 }

      dhSinglePass-cofactorDH-sha512kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 14 3 }

      mqvSinglePass-sha1kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        x9-63-scheme 16 }

      mqvSinglePass-sha224kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 15 0 }

      mqvSinglePass-sha256kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 15 1 }

      mqvSinglePass-sha384kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 15 2 }

      mqvSinglePass-sha512kdf-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        secg-scheme 15 3 }

   where

      x9-63-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        iso(1) identified-organization(3) tc68(133) country(16)
        x9(840) x9-63(63) schemes(0) }

   and

      secg-scheme OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= {
        iso(1) identified-organization(3) certicom(132) schemes(1) }

   When the object identifiers are used here within an algorithm
   identifier, the associated parameters field contains KeyWrapAlgorithm
   to indicate the key wrap algorithm and any associated parameters.

7.1.5.  Key Wrap Algorithms

   Key wrap algorithms are used as part of the parameters in the key
   agreement algorithm.  The key wrap algorithms used in this document
   are Triple-DES, AES-128, AES-192, and AES-256.  The object
   identifiers and parameters for these algorithms are found in
   [CMS-ALG] and [CMS-AES].

Top      Up      ToC       Page 24 
7.1.6.  Content Encryption Algorithms

   Content encryption algorithms are used in EnvelopedData and
   AuthEnvelopedData in the EncryptedContentInfo
   contentEncryptionAlgorithm field.  The content encryption algorithms
   used with EnvelopedData in this document are 3-Key Triple DES in CBC
   mode, AES-128 in CBC mode, AES-192 in CBC mode, and AES-256 in CBC
   mode.  The object identifiers and parameters associated with these
   algorithms are found in [CMS-ALG] and [CMS-AES].  The content
   encryption algorithms used with AuthEnvelopedData in this document
   are AES-128 in CCM mode, AES-192 in CCM mode, AES-256 in CCM mode,
   AES-128 in GCM mode, AES-192 in GCM mode, and AES-256 in GCM mode.
   The object identifiers and parameters associated with these
   algorithms are found in [CMS-AESCG].

7.1.7.  Message Authentication Code Algorithms

   Message authentication code algorithms are used in AuthenticatedData
   in the macAlgorithm field.  The message authentication code
   algorithms used in this document are HMAC with SHA-1, HMAC with
   SHA-224, HMAC with SHA-256, HMAC with SHA-384, and HMAC with SHA-512.
   The object identifiers and parameters associated with these
   algorithms are found in [CMS-ALG] and [HMAC-SHA2].

   NOTE: [HMAC-SHA2] defines the object identifiers for HMAC with
   SHA-224, HMAC with SHA-256, HMAC with SHA-384, and HMAC with SHA-512,
   but there is no ASN.1 module from which to import these object
   identifiers.  Therefore, the object identifiers for these algorithms
   are included in the ASN.1 modules defined in Appendix A.

7.1.8.  Key Derivation Algorithm

   The KDF used in this document is as specified in Section 3.6.1 of
   [SEC1].  The hash algorithm is identified in the key agreement
   algorithm.  For example, dhSinglePass-stdDH-sha256kdf-scheme uses the
   KDF from [SEC1] but uses SHA-256 instead of SHA-1.

7.2.  Other Syntax

   The following additional syntax is used here.

   When using ECDSA with SignedData, ECDSA signatures are encoded using
   the type:

      ECDSA-Sig-Value ::= SEQUENCE {
        r INTEGER,
        s INTEGER }

Top      Up      ToC       Page 25 
   ECDSA-Sig-Value is specified in [PKI-ALG].  Within CMS, ECDSA-Sig-
   Value is DER-encoded and placed within a signature field of
   SignedData.

   When using ECDH and ECMQV with EnvelopedData, AuthenticatedData, and
   AuthEnvelopedData, ephemeral and static public keys are encoded using
   the type ECPoint.  Implementations MUST support uncompressed keys,
   MAY support compressed keys, and MUST NOT support hybrid keys.

      ECPoint ::= OCTET STRING

   When using ECMQV with EnvelopedData, AuthenticatedData, and
   AuthEnvelopedData, the sending agent's ephemeral public key and
   additional keying material are encoded using the type:

      MQVuserKeyingMaterial ::= SEQUENCE {
        ephemeralPublicKey      OriginatorPublicKey,
        addedukm            [0] EXPLICIT UserKeyingMaterial OPTIONAL  }

   The ECPoint syntax is used to represent the ephemeral public key and
   is placed in the ephemeralPublicKey publicKey field.  The additional
   user keying material is placed in the addedukm field.  Then the
   MQVuserKeyingMaterial value is DER-encoded and placed within the ukm
   field of EnvelopedData, AuthenticatedData, or AuthEnvelopedData.

   When using ECDH or ECMQV with EnvelopedData, AuthenticatedData, or
   AuthEnvelopedData, the key-encryption keys are derived by using the
   type:

      ECC-CMS-SharedInfo ::= SEQUENCE {
        keyInfo         AlgorithmIdentifier,
        entityUInfo [0] EXPLICIT OCTET STRING OPTIONAL,
        suppPubInfo [2] EXPLICIT OCTET STRING  }

   The fields of ECC-CMS-SharedInfo are as follows:

      keyInfo contains the object identifier of the key-encryption
      algorithm (used to wrap the CEK) and associated parameters.  In
      this specification, 3DES wrap has NULL parameters while the AES
      wraps have absent parameters.

      entityUInfo optionally contains additional keying material
      supplied by the sending agent.  When used with ECDH and CMS, the
      entityUInfo field contains the octet string ukm.  When used with
      ECMQV and CMS, the entityUInfo contains the octet string addedukm
      (encoded in MQVuserKeyingMaterial).

Top      Up      ToC       Page 26 
      suppPubInfo contains the length of the generated KEK, in bits,
      represented as a 32-bit number, as in [CMS-DH] and [CMS-AES].
      (For example, for AES-256 it would be 00 00 01 00.)

   Within CMS, ECC-CMS-SharedInfo is DER-encoded and used as input to
   the key derivation function, as specified in Section 3.6.1 of [SEC1].

   NOTE: ECC-CMS-SharedInfo differs from the OtherInfo specified in
   [CMS-DH].  Here, a counter value is not included in the keyInfo field
   because the key derivation function specified in Section 3.6.1 of
   [SEC1] ensures that sufficient keying data is provided.

8.  Recommended Algorithms and Elliptic Curves

   It is RECOMMENDED that implementations of this specification support
   SignedData and EnvelopedData.  Support for AuthenticatedData and
   AuthEnvelopedData is OPTIONAL.

   In order to encourage interoperability, implementations SHOULD use
   the elliptic curve domain parameters specified by [PKI-ALG].

      - MAY support ECDSA with SHA-1, ECDSA with SHA-224, ECDSA with
        SHA-384, and ECDSA with SHA-512; other digital signature
        algorithms MAY also be supported.

   When using ECDSA, to promote interoperability it is RECOMMENDED that
   the P-192, P-224, and P-256 curves be used with SHA-256; the P-384
   curve be used with SHA-384; and the P-521 curve be used with SHA-512.

   primitive MUST be supported.  Support for ephemeral-static ECDH co-
   factor is OPTIONAL, and support for 1-Pass ECMQV is also OPTIONAL.

        alg-CMS3DESwrap, id-aes192-wrap, and id-aes256-wrap key wrap
        algorithms; and the des-ede3-cbc, id-aes192-cbc, and id-

        id-aes192-gcm, and id-aes256-ccm authenticated-content
        encryption algorithms; other algorithms MAY also be supported.

9.  Security Considerations

   Cryptographic algorithms will be broken or weakened over time.
   Implementers and users need to check that the cryptographic
   algorithms listed in this document continue to provide the expected
   level of security.  The IETF from time to time may issue documents
   dealing with the current state of the art.

   Cryptographic algorithms rely on random numbers.  See [RANDOM] for
   guidance on generation of random numbers.

   Receiving agents that validate signatures and sending agents that
   encrypt messages need to be cautious of cryptographic processing
   usage when validating signatures and encrypting messages using keys
   larger than those mandated in this specification.  An attacker could
   send keys and/or certificates with keys that would result in
   excessive cryptographic processing, for example, keys larger than
   those mandated in this specification, which could swamp the
   processing element.  Agents that use such keys without first
   validating the certificate to a trust anchor are advised to have some
   sort of cryptographic resource management system to prevent such
   attacks.

   Using secret keys of an appropriate size is crucial to the security
   of a Diffie-Hellman exchange.  For elliptic curve groups, the size of
   the secret key must be equal to the size of n (the order of the group
   generated by the point g).  Using larger secret keys provides
   absolutely no additional security, and using smaller secret keys is
   likely to result in dramatically less security.  (See [SP800-56A] for
   more information on selecting secret keys.)

Top      Up      ToC       Page 29 
   This specification is based on [CMS], [CMS-AES], [CMS-AESCG],
   [CMS-ALG], [CMS-AUTHENV], [CMS-DH], [CMS-SHA2], [FIPS180-3],
   [FIPS186-3], and [HMAC-SHA2], and the appropriate security
   considerations of those documents apply.

   In addition, implementers of AuthenticatedData and AuthEnvelopedData
   should be aware of the concerns expressed in [BON] when using
   AuthenticatedData and AuthEnvelopedData to send messages to more than
   one recipient.  Also, users of MQV should be aware of the
   vulnerability described in [K].

   When implementing EnvelopedData, AuthenticatedData, and
   AuthEnvelopedData, there are five algorithm-related choices that need
   to be made:

      1) What is the public key size?
      2) What is the KDF?
      3) What is the key wrap algorithm?
      4) What is the content encryption algorithm?
      5) What is the curve?

   Consideration must be given to the strength of the security provided
   by each of these choices.  Security algorithm strength is measured in
   bits, where bits is measured in equivalence to a symmetric cipher
   algorithm.  Thus, a strong symmetric cipher algorithm with a key of X
   bits is said to provide X bits of security.  For other algorithms,
   the key size is mapped to an equivalent symmetric cipher strength.
   It is recommended that the bits of security provided by each are
   roughly equivalent.  The following table provides comparable minimum
   bits of security [SP800-57] for the ECDH/ECMQV key sizes, KDFs, key
   wrapping algorithms, and content encryption algorithms.  It also
   lists curves [PKI-ALG] for the key sizes.

   When implementing SignedData, there are three algorithm-related
   choices that need to be made:

      1) What is the public key size?
      2) What is the hash algorithm?
      3) What is the curve?

   Consideration must be given to the bits of security provided by each
   of these choices.  Security is measured in bits, where a strong
   symmetric cipher with a key of X bits is said to provide X bits of
   security.  It is recommended that the bits of security provided by
   each choice are roughly equivalent.  The following table provides
   comparable minimum bits of security [SP800-57] for the ECDSA key
   sizes and message digest algorithms.  It also lists curves [PKI-ALG]
   for the key sizes.

10.  IANA Considerations

   This document makes extensive use of object identifiers to register
   originator public key types and algorithms.  The algorithm object
   identifiers are registered in the ANSI X9.62, ANSI X9.63, NIST, RSA,
   and SECG arcs.  Additionally, object identifiers are used to identify
   the ASN.1 modules found in Appendix A (there are two).  These are
   defined by the SMIME WG Registrar in an arc delegated by RSA to the
   SMIME Working Group: iso(1) member-body(2) us(840) rsadsi(113549)
   pkcs(1) pkcs-9(9) smime(16) modules(0).  No action by IANA is
   necessary for this document or any anticipated updates.
