           SHA-3 Related Algorithms and Identifiers for PKIX
               draft-turner-lamps-adding-sha3-to-pkix-01

Abstract

   This document describes the conventions for using the SHA-3 family of
   hash functions in the Internet X.509 PKI as one-way hash functions
   and with the ECDSA signature algorithm; the conventions for the
   associated ECDSA subject public keys are also described.  Digital
   signatures are used to sign certificates and CRLs (Certificate
   Revocation Lists).

1.  Introduction

   [RFC3279], [RFC4055], [RFC5480], and [I-D.ietf-curdle-pkix] defines
   the contents of the signatureAlgorithm, signatureValue, signature,
   and subjectPublicKeyInfo fields within Internet X.509 certificates
   and CRLs (Certificate Revocation Lists) [RFC5280] for a number of
   algorithms.  This document does the same for the SHA-3 family of one-
   way hash functions and their use with the ECDSA and RSA PKCS#1 v1.5
   digital signature algorithms.

   Familiarity with [RFC5280] is assumed.

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
   [RFC2119].

2.  Algorithm Support

   This section describes cryptographic algorithms which may be used
   with the Internet X.509 Certificate and CRL profile [RFC5280].  This
   section describes one-way hash functions and digital signature
   algorithms which may be used to sign certificates and CRLs, and
   identifies OIDs (Object Identifiers) for public keys contained in a
   certificate.
