This is the third draft of a profile for specification of Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) keys and signatures in Internet Public Key Infrastructure X.509 certificates and certificate revocation lists. This specification is an addendum to RFC 2459; implementations must also conform to RFC 2459. In addition, this document references ANSI X9.62 for the specification of the ECDSA algorithm. This specification only addresses the format of ECDSA keys and signatures. Please send comments on this document to the mail list.
