 ShangMi (SM) Cipher Suites for Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol
                              Version 1.3
                   draft-yang-tls-tls13-sm-suites-02

Abstract

   This document specifies a set of cipher suites for the Transport
   Layer Security (TLS) protocol version 1.3 to support ShangMi (SM)
   cryptographic algorithms.

   The use of these cipher suites with TLSv1.3 is not endorsed by the
   IETF.  The SM cipher suites are becoming mandatory in China, and so
   this document provides a description of how to use the SM cipher
   suites with TLSv1.3 so that implementers can produce interworking
   implementations.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes two new cipher suites for the Transport Layer
   Security (TLS) protocol version 1.3 (TLSv1.3, [RFC8446]).  The new
   cipher suites are as follows (see also Section 2):

      CipherSuite TLS_SM4_GCM_SM3 = { 0x00, 0xC6 };
      CipherSuite TLS_SM4_CCM_SM3 = { 0x00, 0xC7 };

   These new cipher suites contain several ShangMi (SM) cryptographic
   algorithms that provide both authentication and confidentiality.  For
