Additional Hash Algorithms for HTTP Instance Digests
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Document Action: 'Additional Hash Algorithms for HTTP Instance Digests' to Informational RFC The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Additional Hash Algorithms for HTTP Instance Digests ' <draft-bryan-http-digest-algorithm-values-update-04.txt> as an Informational RFC This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an IETF Working Group. The IESG contact person is Lisa Dusseault. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-bryan-http-digest-algorithm-values-update-04.txt
Technical Summary The IANA registry named "Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Digest Algorithm Values" defines values for digest algorithms used by Instance Digests in HTTP. Instance Digests in HTTP provide a digest, also known as a checksum or hash, of an entire representation of the current state of a resource. This draft adds new values to the registry and updates previous values. Working Group Summary This is not a WG document, but was reviewed in the HTTPBIS WG. Document Quality This document updates IANA/registration procedures rather than affecting an implementable protocol. Personnel Lisa Dusseault is the sponsor for this document.
