RFC 4279 and RFC 4785 describe pre-shared key cipher suites for
Transport Layer Security (TLS).  However, all those cipher suites use
SHA-1 in their Message Authentication Code (MAC) algorithm.  This
document describes a set of pre-shared key cipher suites for TLS that
uses stronger digest algorithms (i.e., SHA-256 or SHA-384) and
another set that uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) in
Galois Counter Mode (GCM).  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This document is a product of the Transport Layer Security Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
