   OpenPGP specifies message formats and certificate formats used for
   exchange of encrypted and/or authenticated objects. This document
   discusses methods of extending OpenPGP's message formats to support
   an authorization system. This system would use public key
   cryptography to authenticate a user to a server and establish the
   user's access permissions. The concept is that the user acquires a
   ticket signed by some issuer that specifies what they are entitled
   to do. That ticket is then submitted to a server. The server uses a
   challenge/response method to verify that the holder really has the
   matching private key. The server then allows the access specified.

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
