Subject: Re: Informational RFC to be: draft-dolmatov-cryptocom-gost341194-07.txt

The IESG has no problem with the publication of 'GOST R 34.11-94 Hash function algorithm' <draft-dolmatov-cryptocom-gost341194-07.txt> as an Informational RFC.

The IESG would also like the IRSG or RFC-Editor to review the comments in 
the datatracker 
(https://datatracker.ietf.org/public/pidtracker.cgi?command=view_id&dTag=18662&rfc_flag=0)

and the comment log.

Technical Summary

   This document is intended to be a source of information about the

   is one of the Russian cryptographic standard algorithms (called GOST
   algorithms). Recently, Russian cryptography is being used in Internet
   applications, and this document has been created as information for
   developers and users of GOST R 34.11-94 for hash computation.

Working Group Summary

   This is not the product of an IETF WG; it is an independent
   submission to the RFC Editor.
