Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: RFC Editor <email@example.com> Subject: Document Action: 'Suite B Cryptographic Suites for IPsec' to Informational RFC (draft-law-rfc4869bis-01.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Suite B Cryptographic Suites for IPsec' (draft-law-rfc4869bis-01.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 Sean Turner. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-law-rfc4869bis/
Technical Summary This document updates the four cryptographic user interface suites ("UI suites") for IPsec that were defined in RFC 4869. The four suites provide compatibility with the United States National Security Agency's Suite B specifications. The primary changes from RFC 4869 are that this document removes definitions of the suites for IKEv1, removes the IKE authentication methods from the suite definitions, and removes the requirements on rekeying in IKEv2. Working Group Summary This is not the product of a WG. Document Quality This profile is simpler than the one it replaces from RFC 4869; it should be easier for implementers to follow this document than its predecessor. I am aware of multiple commercial vendors who have expressed interest in using these UI suites. Personnel Paul Hoffman (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Document Shepherd. Sean Turner (email@example.com) is the Responsible Area Director. Tero Kivinen (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the IANA Expert.
