I would like to thank Ran Canetti for serving as Crypto Forum Research  
Group co-chair, starting at the inception of the RG almost ten years  
ago.  Ran has decided to step down from this role.

Fortunately, Kevin Igoe has offered to fill this role.  Kevin is a  
senior cryptographer with the Commercial Solutions Center of the U.S.  
National Security Agency.  Kevin has a great depth of technical  
knowledge in this area, as
well as a pragmatic focus that fits well with the IETF.  He has  
authored/coauthored four RFCs and several current drafts on  
cryptography, and he led the design of the SHA-1 hash algorithm.

Thanks Kevin and Ran!
