The IESG has received a request from the Javascript Object Signing and
Encryption WG (jose) to consider the following document:
- 'CFRG ECDH and signatures in JOSE'
  <draft-ietf-jose-cfrg-curves-05.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the mailing lists by 2016-08-12. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document defines how to use the Diffie-Hellman algorithms
   "X25519" and "X448" as well as the signature algorithms "Ed25519" and
   "Ed448" from the IRTF CFRG elliptic curves work in JOSE.
