[kitten] I-D Action: draft-ietf-kitten-pkinit-alg-agility-04.txt


A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Common Authentication Technology Next Generation WG of the IETF.

        Title           : PKINIT Algorithm Agility
        Authors         : Love Hornquist Astrand
                          Larry Zhu
                          Margaret Wasserman
                          Greg Hudson
        Filename        : draft-ietf-kitten-pkinit-alg-agility-04.txt
        Pages           : 19
        Date            : 2019-02-03

   This document updates PKINIT, as defined in RFC 4556, to remove
   protocol structures tied to specific cryptographic algorithms.  The
   PKINIT key derivation function is made negotiable, and the digest
   algorithms for signing the pre-authentication data and the client's
   X.509 certificates are made discoverable.

   These changes provide preemptive protection against vulnerabilities
   discovered in the future against any specific cryptographic
   algorithm, and allow incremental deployment of newer algorithms.
