This memo describes the use of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
in the Counter and CBC-MAC Mode (CCM) of operation within Transport
Layer Security (TLS) to provide confidentiality and data-origin
authentication.  The AES-CCM algorithm is amenable to compact
implementations, making it suitable for constrained environments,
while at the same time providing a high level of security.  The
cipher suites defined in this document use Elliptic Curve
Cryptography (ECC) and are advantageous in networks with limited
bandwidth.
