This document specifies additions and amendments to RFC 4462. It
defines a new key exchange method that uses SHA-2 for integrity and
deprecates weak Diffie-Hellman (DH) groups. The purpose of this
specification is to modernize the cryptographic primitives used by
Generic Security Service (GSS) key exchanges.

This document is a product of the CURves, Deprecating and a Little more Encryption Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
