Title : Integrity, privacy and security in OPES for SMTP
Author(s) : M. Stecher
Filename : draft-ietf-opes-smtp-security-03.txt
Pages : 22
Date : 2007-2-7
The Open Pluggable Edge Services (OPES) framework is application
agnostic. Application specific adaptations extend that framework.
Previous work has focused on HTTP and work for SMTP is in progress.
These protocols differ fundamentally in the way data flows and it
turns out that existing OPES requirements and IAB considerations for
OPES need to be reviewed with regards to how well they fit for SMTP
adaptation. This document analyzes aspects about the integrity of
SMTP and mail message adaptation by OPES systems and privacy and
security issues when the OPES framework is adapted to SMTP and lists
requirements that must be considered when creating the "SMTP
adaptation with OPES" document.
The intent of this document is to capture this information before the
current OPES working group shuts down. This is to provide input for
subsequent working groups or individual contributors that may pick up
the OPES/SMTP work at a later date.

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
