This memo specifies two elliptic curves over prime fields that offer
a high level of practical security in cryptographic applications,
including Transport Layer Security (TLS).  These curves are intended
to operate at the ~128-bit and ~224-bit security level, respectively,
and are generated deterministically based on a list of required
