this is the IRTF.  If you're expecting us to solicit or disburse money, I'm
afraid that you'll be disappointed.  If you're unfamiliar with the IRTF, the
guidelines and procedures are outlined in RFC 2014.

The idea of CFRG is that the RG members can provide this kind of review, and
that the results of crypto analysis relevant to the Internet can be
disseminated and discussed.
