This memo describes the use of the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
in the Counter with Cipher Block Chaining - Message Authentication
Code (CBC-MAC) Mode (CCM) of operation within Transport Layer
Security (TLS) and Datagram TLS (DTLS) to provide confidentiality and
data origin authentication.  The AES-CCM algorithm is amenable to
compact implementations, making it suitable for constrained
environments.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
