#8: Direct mode for key agreement needs security analysis


Comment (by michael.jones@microsoft.com):

 What existing security considerations on key lifetimes of encryption keys
 would it be appropriate for us to reference?  These have to exist, albeit,
 perhaps in algorithm-specific contexts.

 Given that JOSE is only defining a representation for the inputs and
 outputs of existing algorithms, not defining new algorithms, perhaps the
 right thing to do is also the simple thing to do: state that they key
 lifetime security considerations in the specifications that define those
 algorithms continue to apply when using those algorithms using JOSE data
 structures.
