Mike,

A little bit of looking through my file cabinet revealed
a "draft proposed ANSI standard for Presentation Layer
Encryption" dated April, 1984. "The primary purpose ...
is to define the functional and procedural characteristics
of cryptographic operations ... on behalf of a requesting
application layer entity (End User)."

At the time, this standard was being developed under the
auspices of ANSI X3T1. Interested parties could probably
obtain updated copies from ANSI.
