Subject: RNG proposals
As discussed on the previous TC call, I've split out the proposal to keep each item separate and to allow for discussion and alternate layered proposals on the range of items covered in the call. 1) The base proposal simply allows for specification of the RNG supporting the NIST terminology used in the FIPS140 cryptographic module validation program and elsewhere. 2) The query proposal allows for returning which RNG (or RNGs) a server supports. 3) The attribute proposal covers off on returning which RNG was used during key generation. 4) The specify proposal uses the base+attribute proposal and extends it to allow for specification by the client as to which RNG it requires to be used. There is an Outstanding Comments section in each document covering the issues raised on the call and via subsequent discussions with comments on each issue. Thanks, Tim.
