As I mentioned in a previous message [0] during the interim we discussed
moving from the TLS PRF to HKDF [RFC5869].

The general sentiment was:

- Move to HKDF
- Specify both SHA-256 and SHA-384 (the latter being required for
  Suite B)

This is also the time when we would want to look at adjusting
the key expansion to separate keys and IVs (assuming we still
have IVs).

Please use this thread to discuss this topic.
