As an organization which has relied on NIST crypto standards for many
years we are gravely threatened by NSA's subversion of crypto
standards and the distrust that's been sown in our community.

As the premier Internet standards body we have a voice and moral
authority on the issue that no-one else has.

It's imperative we send the message that subversion of crypto
standards is unacceptable.
