        Title           : Negotiated Finite Field Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral Parameters for TLS
        Author          : Daniel Kahn Gillmor
	Filename        : draft-ietf-tls-negotiated-ff-dhe-09.txt
	Pages           : 26
	Date            : 2015-05-12

Abstract:
   Traditional finite-field-based Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange
   during the TLS handshake suffers from a number of security,
   interoperability, and efficiency shortcomings.  These shortcomings
   arise from lack of clarity about which DH group parameters TLS
   servers should offer and clients should accept.  This document offers
   a solution to these shortcomings for compatible peers by using a
   section of the TLS "EC Named Curve Registry" to establish common
   finite-field DH parameters with known structure and a mechanism for
   peers to negotiate support for these groups.
