1.  Introduction

   This document specifies cipher suites for the Transport Layer
   Security (TLS) [RFC5246] protocol to support the ARIA [RFC5794]
   encryption algorithm as a block cipher algorithm.  The cipher suites
   include variants using the SHA-2 family of cryptographic hash
   functions and ARIA Galois counter mode.  Elliptic curve cipher suites
   and pre-shared key (PSK) cipher suites are also defined.

   The cipher suites with SHA-1 are not included in this document.  Due
   to recent analytic work on SHA-1 [Wang05], the IETF is gradually
   moving away from SHA-1 and towards stronger hash algorithms.

1.1.  ARIA

   ARIA is a general-purpose block cipher algorithm developed by Korean
   cryptographers in 2003.  It is an iterated block cipher with 128-,
   192-, and 256-bit keys and encrypts 128-bit blocks in 12, 14, and 16
   rounds, depending on the key size.  It is secure and suitable for
   most software and hardware implementations on 32-bit and 8-bit
   processors.  It was established as a Korean standard block cipher
   algorithm in 2004 [ARIAKS] and has been widely used in Korea,
   especially for government-to-public services.  It was included in
   PKCS #11 in 2007 [ARIAPKCS].  The algorithm specification and object
   identifiers are described in [RFC5794].
