Technical Summary

   AES-CMAC uses the AES cipher block to provide a 128-bit message
   authentication code (MAC).  The document provides clear guidelines
   on the use of AES-CMAC, test vectors, and test code.

Working Group Summary

   This is an individual submission.

Protocol Quality

   The AES-CMAC is one of choices for the message authentication
   code (MAC) and key derivation function (KDF) supported in
   IEEE 802.16e.  We believe that AES-CMAC has been implemented by
   INTEL, Runcom and SAMSUNG for their IEEE 802.16e-compliant products.
   We believe that other vendors develop or have developed AES-CMAC for
   their IEEE 802.16e-compliant products.

   This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
