I have reviewed this document as part of the Operational directorate's ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG.  These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the operational area directors.

Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other last call comments.


Document: draft-ietf-curdle-ssh-modp-dh-sha2-07


Reviewer: Linda Dunbar


Review result: Has issues.



-        Page 4: Is Figure 1 intended to be empty? Or Figure 1 is to list the names? Why not simply use bullets to list those names? (Instead of Figure)?

-        This document is supposed to “augment the Key Exchange Method Names in RFC4253”. Other than the names, is there anything more? Is the following sentence the main descriptions of those augmentation?

“The group15 through group18 names are the same as those specified in

[RFC3526] 3072-bit MODP Group 15, 4096-bit MODP Group 16, 6144-bit

MODP Group 17, and 8192-bit MODP Group 18.”


Thanks, Linda Dunbar
