Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) Brainpool Curves for Transport Layer Security (TLS)
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Document Action: 'ECC Brainpool Curves for Transport Layer Security (TLS)' to Informational RFC (draft-merkle-tls-brainpool-04.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'ECC Brainpool Curves for Transport Layer Security (TLS)' (draft-merkle-tls-brainpool-04.txt) as Informational RFC This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Sean Turner. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-merkle-tls-brainpool/
Technical Summary This memo specifies three new named elliptic curves, generated by the ECC Brainpool, for use in TLS. These curves have already been assigned OIDs but also require a name in a TLS repository to be used with TLS. Working Group Summary This memo is not a working group document but it was discussed on the TLS mailing list. There was some support but not enough to adopt it as a working group item. Document Quality The elliptic curves have been used in other protocols than TLS. The test vectors in the memo have been verified by the document shepherd Personnel Dan Harkins is the document Shepherd. Sean Turner is the responsible AD.
