This document defines algorithms for Authenticated Encryption with
Associated Data (AEAD), and defines a uniform interface and a
registry for such algorithms.  The interface and registry can be used
as an application-independent set of cryptoalgorithm suites.  This
approach provides advantages in efficiency and security, and promotes
the reuse of crypto implementations.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
