Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Identifiers and Test Vectors for HMAC-SHA-224, HMAC-SHA-256, HMAC-SHA-384, and HMAC-SHA-512' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Identifiers and Test Vectors for HMAC-SHA-224, HMAC-SHA-256, HMAC-SHA-384, and HMAC-SHA-512 ' <draft-nystrom-smime-hmac-sha-03.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Russ Housley. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-nystrom-smime-hmac-sha-03.txt
Technical Summary This document provides test vectors for the HMAC-SHA-224 HMAC-SHA-256, HMAC-SHA-384, and HMAC-SHA-512 message authentication schemes. It also provides ASN.1 object identifiers and URIs to identify use of these schemes in protocols. The test vectors provided in this document may be used for conformance testing. Working Group Summary This is an individual draft, although it has been announced on the S/MIME WG mailing list. The comments received have been editorial and encouraging. Protocol Quality This is not a protocol, rather a way to identify certain cryptographic schemes in various protocols. The document also provides test vectors and these have been corroborated by three independent implementations. This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
