Security-relevant Data Structures  

Before describing how X.400 security services counter the threats presented in Section 11.4, three data structures must be discussed. These data structures: the security label, the asymmetric token, and the public key certificate, are used to convey security-related information between communicating parties. This section only defines the principal attributes comprising the structures; it provides no details regarding how these structures are used by X.400 security services.
