Hi,

As mentioned in the draft-irtf-dtnrg-bundle-security-08 :
The BAB ciphersuite is based on shared secret using HMAC.
The PIB is based on digital signatures using RSA with SHA 256.
the PCB and ESB are based on RSA with AES.

My question is, do we have (or can we implement) any common ciphersuite for all of the security blocks?

Thanks
