Our Clients


IAIK-CMS with S/MIMEv3 is a library for the Java™ platform that implements the IETF approved CMS (Cryptographic Message Synatx, RFC 5652), S/MIME (Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions Version 3, RFC 5751) and ESS (Enhanced Security Services for S/MIME, RFC 2634, RFC 5035) protocols.

 CMS  is the IETF standardized successor of the PKCS7v1.5 protocol developed by RSA Inc.. It specifies several cryptographic mechanisms for digitally signing, digesting, authenticating or encrypting any kind of data. As main difference to PKCS#7, CMS takes care of algorithm independence and introduces additional content formats and processing rules.

 S/MIMEv3  is the IETF standardized successor of the S/MIMEv2 protocol developed by RSA Inc. It uses the cryptographic mechanisms specified by CMS for securing MIME formatted messages. As S/MIMEv2 already has been some kind of industry standard for secure email transfer over the internet, S/MIMEv3 adopts the amendments of CMS for becoming an internet standard. Today any notable email client like Netscape/Mozilla Messenger or Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express is able to speak S/MIME.

 ESS  enhances the S/MIME protocol about some additional security services that are based on the Secure Data Network System (SDNS) Message Security Protocol of the NSA, but maybe useful in many other environments, particularly business and finance applications, too.

As CMS succeeds PKCS#7v1.5 and S/MIMEv3 succeeds S/MIMEv2, IAIK-CMS with S/MIMEv3 is the successor library of the PKCS#7 implementation of IAIK-JCE and the S/MIMEv2 implementation of IAIK-SMIME. IAIK-CMS operates on top of the IAIK-JCE API, which is included in the license. As for IAIK-JCE, we provide Applet and WebStart Editions for IAIK-CMS, too.
