Hi all,

Here is the proposed text that hopefully captures what we discussed today regarding the MTI algorithms: 

https://bitbucket.org/6tisch/draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal-security/commits/55642c4e83d34192c45c395330cb609850e82867 <https://bitbucket.org/6tisch/draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal-security/commits/55642c4e83d34192c45c395330cb609850e82867>

We did not discuss the asymmetric algorithms though. The current text mandates secp256r1 curve and ECDSA with SHA-256. Is this fine or should we move to EdDSA?
