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).
