.SH "NAME"
cmsutil \- Performs basic cryptograpic operations, such as encryption and decryption, on Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) messages\&.
.SH "SYNOPSIS"

\fBcmsutil\fR [\fIoptions\fR] [[\fIarguments\fR]]
.SH "STATUS"
.PP
This documentation is still work in progress\&. Please contribute to the initial review in

.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.PP
The
\fBcmsutil\fR
command\-line uses the S/MIME Toolkit to perform basic operations, such as encryption and decryption, on Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) messages\&.
.PP
To run cmsutil, type the command cmsutil option [arguments] where option and arguments are combinations of the options and arguments listed in the following section\&. Each command takes one option\&. Each option may take zero or more arguments\&. To see a usage string, issue the command without options\&.
