Title : MIME-based Secure Peer-to-Peer Business Data
Interchange Using HTTP, Applicability Statement 2 (AS2)
Author(s) : D. Moberg, R. Drummond
Filename : draft-ietf-ediint-as2-20.txt
Pages : 43

This document provides a applicability statement (RFC 2026, 3.2)
that describes how to exchange structured business data securely
using the HTTP transfer protocol, instead of SMTP; the
applicability statement for SMTP is found in RFC 3335. Structured
business data may be XML, Electronic Data Interchange
(EDI) in either the American National Standards Committee (ANSI)
X12 format, or in the UN Electronic Data Interchange for
Administration, Commerce and Transport (UN/EDIFACT) format,
or in other structured data formats. The data is packaged using
standard MIME structures. Authentication and data confidentiality
are obtained by using Cryptographic Message Syntax with S/MIME
security body parts. Authenticated acknowledgements make use of
multipart/signed Message Disposition Notification (MDN)
responses to the original HTTP message. This applicability
statement is informally referred to as "AS2" because it is the
second applicability statement, produced after "AS1," RFC 3335.

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
