Abstract


   RFC 5485 specifies the conventions for digital signatures on
   Internet-Draft documents.  The Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) is
   used to create a detached signature, which is stored in a separate
   companion file so that no existing utilities are impacted by the
   addition of the digital signature.

   The RFC Editor recently published the first RFC that includes non-
   ASCII characters in a "text" file.  The conventions specified in RFC
   7997 were followed.  We assume that non-ASCII characters will soon
   start appearing in Internet-Drafts as well.  This document updates
   the handling of digital signatures on Internet-Draft document for
   non-ASCII characters in a "text" file.

   This document (once approved) updates RFC 5485.
