IETF RFC 6955
Diffie-Hellman Proof-of-Possession Algorithms
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
This document describes two methods for producing an integrity check value from a Diffie-Hellman key pair and one method for producing an integrity check value from an Elliptic Curve key pair. This behavior is needed for such operations as creating the signature of a Public- Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS) #10 Certification Request. These algorithms are designed to provide a Proof-of-Possession of the private key and not to be a general purpose signing algorithm.
This document obsoletes RFC 2875.
