This is a profile of RFC 5280 (PKIX format) that is specific to
the United States National Security Agency's Suite B Cryptography
specification. In essence, it profiles RFC 5280 down to meet the
Suite B requirements.
Working Group Summary
The document was announced multiple times on the PKIX WG mailing
list, and some off-list comments were sent to the document
authors. There was also a short presentation on the document at
IETF 74. It was not appropriate to discuss it in the WG itself.
It is expected that this document will be widely adopted by
vendors for the organization that wrote this profile. Most if not
all of the algorithms specified in this profile are already in at
least one popular open-source package.
Paul Hoffman is the Document Shepherd; Tim Polk is the
responsible Area Director.
