This document updates RFC7182, which specifies a framework for, and
specific examples of, integrity check values (ICVs) for packets and
messages using the generalized packet/message format specified in
RFC5444. It does so by defining an additional cryptographic function
that allows the creation of an ICV that is an identity-based
signature, defined according to the ECCSI (Elliptic Curve-Based
Certificateless Signatures for Identity-Based Encryption) algorithm
specified in RFC6507.
Working Group Summary:
The document was presented at the WG meeting at
IETF’90, and had reasonable discussion both before
and after this meeting. There were significant
expression of support for adoption as WG document,
a couple of reviews posted after adoption, which were
addressed. On the author’s initiative, external
verification of the example provided in Appendix A
was sought from a crypto-expert.
WGLC saw positive support for publication, with
nobody appearing to be “in the rough"
There are existing implementations of this extension
mechanism, known to the document shepherd.
Dr. Benjamin Smith provided independent verification
of the example provided in Appendix A, and is
recognized for this in the acknowledgements.
No media type, nor MIB doctor, review done, as this
was not needed
This document contains a downward normative reference
to the informational RFC 6507. This was explicitly called
out in the IETF last call.
