Technical Summary The CBOR Object Signing and Encryption (COSE) syntax [I-D.ietf-cose-rfc8152bis-struct] does not define any direct methods for using hash algorithms. There are however circumstances where hash algorithms are used: Indirect signatures where the hash of one or more contents are signed. X.509 certificate or other object identification by the use of a fingerprint. This document defines a set of hash algorithms that are identified by COSE Algorithm Identifiers. Working Group Summary The document has had clear working group consensus for publication and it has been reviewed by a few working group participants since its adoption. The shepherd writeup asserts no issues were raised during the working group process. Document Quality No particular expert reviews (MIB, media types, etc.) are mandated. It has received a number of reviews from working group members. Personnel Ivaylo Petrov is the Document Shepherd. Murray Kucherawy is the responsible Area Director.
