Abstract

   This document provides new cryptographic algorithms to be used with
   HIP.  The Edwards Elliptic Curve and the Keccak sponge functions are
   the main focus.  The HIP parameters and processing instructions
   impacted by these algorithms are defined.

1.  Introduction

   This document adds new cryptographic algorithms for HIPv2 [RFC7401].
   This includes:

   *  New elliptic curves for ECDH.

   *  The Edwards Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (EdDSA)
      used in Host Identities (HI) and for Base Exchange (BEX)
      signatures.

   *  Hashes used in Host Identity Tag (HIT) generation, and wherever
      else hashes are needed.

   *  Keyed hashes used for KEYMAT generation and packet MACing
      operations.
