Technical Summary

   This document describes the conventions for using the SHAKE function
   family in Internet X.509 certificates and CRLs as a one-way hash
   function with RSA-PSS and ECDSA signature algorithms.  The
   conventions for the associated subject public keys are also
   described.

Working Group Summary

   Was there anything in the WG process that is worth noting?
   For example, was there controversy about particular points 
   or were there decisions where the consensus was
   particularly rough? 

Document Quality

    There is consensus for this document in the LAMPS WG.  

    X.509 certificates and CRLs are widely deployed.  A few people
    have expressed interest in using SHAKE in their implementations.

Personnel

    Russ Housley is the document shepherd.
    Roman Danyliw is the responsible area director.
