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>, ipsecme mailing list <email@example.com>, ipsecme chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'ChaCha20, Poly1305 and their use in IKE & IPsec' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-ipsecme-chacha20-poly1305-12.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'ChaCha20, Poly1305 and their use in IKE & IPsec' (draft-ietf-ipsecme-chacha20-poly1305-12.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IP Security Maintenance and Extensions Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Stephen Farrell and Kathleen Moriarty. A URL of this Internet Draft is: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-ipsecme-chacha20-poly1305/
Technical Summary This document describes the use of the ChaCha20 stream cipher along with the Poly1305 authenticator, combined into an AEAD algorithm for both IKEv2 and IPsec. Working Group Summary The document was discussed fairly well in the WG, both as an individual draft and then as a WG document. The WG Last Call elicited good review and changes to the document during, and after, the WG Last Call. Document Quality There is at least one implementation and the draft was reviewed by several developers, some have implemented the algorithms in other applications to date. Personnel Paul Hoffman is the document shepherd, and Kathleen Moriarty is the responsible Area Director. IANA Note There are no additional IANA actions. IANA has assigned the value 28 as a transform identifier for the algorithm described in this document in the "Transform Type 1 - Encryption Algorithm Transform IDs" registry.
