This document describes how to use the 'static-static Elliptic Curve
Diffie-Hellman key-agreement scheme (i.e., Elliptic Curve Diffie-
Hellman where both participants use static Diffie-Hellman values)
with the Cryptographic Message Syntax.  In this form of key
agreement, the Diffie-Hellman values of both the sender and receiver
are long-term values contained in certificates.  This document is not 
an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for
