Technical Summary This document describes the SEED encryption algorithm which has been adopted by most of the security systems in the Republic of Korea. The document includes are a description of the cipher, the key scheduling algorithm, the S-boxes, and a set of test vectors (Appendix B). Working Group Summary The revision to RFC 4009 was started because the RFC Editor told the author that they do not have the bandwidth to publish errata. It seems that a revision is the only way to effectively deal with errata. The revision also attempts to add clarity. The SEED algorithm itself is not changed. This is an individual submission. No working group has reviewed it. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG. Note to RFC Editor Please add the following sentence to the end of the Abstract: "This document obsoletes RFC 4009."
