Technical Summary This document describes the use of the Edwards-curve digital signature algorithm in the IKEv2 protocol as proposed standard. Working Group Summary Version -01 went through WGLC. Changes suggested by the WG participants were mostly editorial. There were three substantive decisions: (1) That the new value in the hash function registry requested from IANA for "Identity" shall not be zero. (2) That we will not use the pre-hashed version of the EdDSA function (same decision made by TLS and Curdle working groups) (3) That we will use a null context (or context-free Ed25519) for IKE (same decision reached in TLS and Curdle working groups) The resulting document represents WG consensus. The document was reviewed by several regular WG participants. Apple reports a working implementation. Document Quality See above Personnel Author is Yoav Nir. Eric Rescorla is the responsible Area Director. Tero Kivinen is the document shepherd.
