Title : Compressed Data for EDIINT

The intent of this document is to be placed on the RFC track as an
The EDIINT AS1 and AS2 message formats don't currently contain any
transport neutral provisions for compressing data when utilizing S/MIME
as the secure packaging standard. Compressing data before transmission
provides a number of advantages including
1. reducing data redundancy, and so reducing opportunities for attacks
exploiting redundancy, and
2. reducing the amount of data and so speeding up cryptographic
processing such as signing, encryption, archiving, and
3. reducing the overall transmitted message size, reducing both time and
bandwidth needed for transport.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
