The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has recently
specified the Cipher-based Message Authentication Code (CMAC),
which is equivalent to the One-Key CBC MAC1 (OMAC1) submitted by
Iwata and Kurosawa.  This memo specifies an authentication algorithm
based on CMAC with the 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
This new authentication algorithm is named AES-CMAC.
The purpose of this document is to make the AES-CMAC algorithm
conveniently available to the Internet Community.  This memo provides 
information for the Internet community.

INFORMATIONAL: This memo provides information for the Internet community. 
It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
