Re: OpenPGP keys and Suite-B, new revision
In the interest of moving forward with the specification I changed the
document to use OIDs for curves. Please take a look at latest
(also available in other formats here: http://brainhub.googlepages.com/pgp)
* I treated OIDs as binary arrays throughout document, as we discussed.
ASN.1 parser is not required to identify the curve.
* The "curve OID" used to identify a curve is a portion of OID, as
Werner suggested. We drop two bytes from ASN.1 DER representation of
OID. The method to create "curve OID" is defined in section 10.
* This edition also includes Suite-B changes that I posted earlier in
I will wait until at least July 6 before submitting this as a second
revisions of the draft to IETF.
I will appreciate your comments. Thank you.
