I just submitted a simple proposal to add four HMAC-SHA-2 pseudorandom
functions for PBKDF2, specified in PKCS #5 v2.1.

Currently only a HMAC-SHA-1 PRF is defined, and there is strong interest
in using a HMAC-SHA-256 PRF with PBKDF2.

I was tempted to ask for the addition of HMAC-SHA512/t variants of the; since SHA512/t where t is 256 is often faster to calculate on 64bit processors[1] than SHA256. However in this particular case I think the proposal is fine as it is.

I am wondering if it is not too late to incorporate this into PKCS #11

I have use cases for if it is.

[1] that don't have a native SHA256 instruction like SPARC T4 onwards has and Intel is reported to be getting in a future release.
