This is the WG call for adoption of:


This draft specifies the use of Curve25519 for ephemeral key exchange in
the TLS and DTLS.  This draft serves as the starting point (it’s expired
and needs to be updated in light of
http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-irtf-cfrg-curves/).  If you object to
the adoption of this draft, please let us know why by 20150602.

Note: We’re not doing an early code point assignment for this draft,
because it clearly needs to resurrected and tweaked.  Once that happens,
there’s nothing stopping a request from the authors for an early code point
