RFC 5289 has been reclassified as Proposed Standard.

        RFC 5289

        Title:      TLS Elliptic Curve Cipher Suites 
                    with SHA-256/384 and AES Galois Counter

RFC 4492 describes elliptic curve cipher suites for Transport Layer
Security (TLS).  However, all those cipher suites use HMAC-SHA-1 as
their Message Authentication Code (MAC) algorithm.  This document
describes sixteen new cipher suites for TLS that specify stronger MAC
algorithms.  Eight use Hashed Message Authentication Code (HMAC) with
SHA-256 or SHA-384, and eight use AES in Galois Counter Mode (GCM).  
This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Transport Layer Security Working Group of the IETF.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.

This announcement is sent to the IETF-Announce and rfc-dist lists.

Requests for special distribution should be addressed to either the
author of the RFC in question, or to rfc-editor@rfc-editor.org.  Unless
specifically noted otherwise on the RFC itself, all RFCs are for
unlimited distribution.
