This memo proposes several elliptic curve domain parameters over
finite prime fields for use in cryptographic applications.  The
domain parameters are consistent with the relevant international
standards, and can be used in X.509 certificates and certificate
revocation lists (CRLs), for Internet Key Exchange (IKE), Transport
Layer Security (TLS), XML signatures, and all applications or
protocols based on the cryptographic message syntax (CMS).  This document 
is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.

This document is an Independent Submission.

INFORMATIONAL: This memo provides information for the Internet community.
It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.
