Which has not even be discussed.  Back when the SHA-3 process started we
said that we will wait for the outcome of it and only then start working
on a a new key format.  Whether this will use SHA-3 or SHA-2 needs to to
discussed.  Given that there is no real world experience with SHA-3, we
can't assume anything at that point.  And if we want to do go for a new
key format I am in favor of rechartering the WG than to have the IETF
decide on individual I-Ds for such changes.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
