A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : Cryptographic Algorithms, Use, & Implementation Requirments for TCP Authentication Option
	Author(s)       : G. Lebovitz, E. Rescorla
	Filename        : draft-ietf-tcpm-tcp-ao-crypto-00.txt
	Pages           : 17

The TCP Authentication Option, TCP-AO, relies on security algorithms
to provide authentication between two end-points.  There are many
such algorithms available, and two TCP-AO systems cannot interoperate
unless they are using the same algorithm(s).  This document specifies
the algorithms and attributes that can be used in TCP-AO's current
manual keying mechanism.
