Hi!

I think this is important for us.

The statement from Phil Rogaway may allow us to have OCB as a MUST
implement mode and degrade EAX to a MAY implement mode.

Salam-Shalom,

   Werner

I can confirm that I have abandoned all OCB patents
and placed into the public domain all OCB-related IP of mine.
While I have been telling people this for quite some time, I don't
think I ever made a proper announcement to the CFRG or on the
OCB webpage. Consider that done.

I hope people will use the scheme to do positive things.

phil
