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).
