  Technical Summary

    This document specifies a padding convention for use with the
    AES Key Wrap algorithm specified in RFC 3394.  This convention
    eliminates the requirement that the length of the key to be
    wrapped is a multiple of 64 bits, allowing a key of any
    practical length to be wrapped.

  Working Group Summary

    This document is not the product of any IETF working group.
