From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'The AES-CMAC-96 Algorithm and its use with IPsec' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'The AES-CMAC-96 Algorithm and its use with IPsec ' <draft-songlee-aes-cmac-96-05.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group.

Technical Summary National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has recently specified the Cipher based MAC (CMAC). This document specifies the use of CMAC mode as the authentication mechanism of IPsec Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) and Authentication Header (AH) protocols. This algorithm is referred to as AES-CMAC-96. Working Group Summary This document is an individual submission. It is not affiliated with any IETF Working Group. Protocol Quality The AES-CMAC is one of choices for the message authentication code (MAC) and key derivation function (KDF) supported in IEEE 802.16e. We believe that AES-CMAC has been implemented by INTEL, Runcom and SAMSUNG for their IEEE 802.16e-compliant products. We believe that other vendors develop or have developed AES-CMAC for their IEEE 802.16e-compliant products. This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
