When asymmetric key management is employed for a given recipient, the "Key-Info:" field transfers two quantities, separated by a comma. The first argument is an IK Use Indicator identifying the algorithm and mode in which the DEK is asymmetrically encrypted. The second argument is a DEK, asymmetrically encrypted under the recipient's public component.

Appropriate asymmetric encryption algorithms and identifiers, and encrypted DEK formats are defined in RFC 1423.
