This document extends RFC 4279, RFC 4492, and RFC 4785 and specifies
a set of cipher suites that use a pre-shared key (PSK) to
authenticate an Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman exchange with Ephemeral
keys (ECDHE).  These cipher suites provide Perfect Forward Secrecy
(PFS).  This memo provides information for the Internet community.
