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>, pkix mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, pkix chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure: Additional Algorithms and Identifiers for DSA and ECDSA' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure: Additional Algorithms and Identifiers for DSA and ECDSA ' <draft-ietf-pkix-sha2-dsa-ecdsa-10.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Public-Key Infrastructure (X.509) Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Pasi Eronen and Tim Polk. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-pkix-sha2-dsa-ecdsa-10.txt
Technical Summary This document defines object identifier values for using DSA and ECDSA with four SHA2-series hash functions, and use of these hash algorithms by themselves. This enables specification of these algorithms in X.509 certificates, consistent with RFC 5280, and use of these algorithms and hash functions for certificate and CRL signatures. It updates RFC 3279, sections 2.1, 2.2.2, and 2.2.3. Document Quality The document is very brief and clearly written. It was delayed for a long time waiting for publication of a NIST document, which is a normative reference, and to coordinate with the relevant ANSI committee members. Personnel The document shepherd is Stephen Kent, and the responsible area director is Pasi Eronen. RFC Editor Note Please add "Updates: RFC 3279" to the page header. In Section 6.1, the author for [SEC1] should be "Standards for Efficient Cryptography Group (SECG)"
