Abstract

   This document proposes the addition of new cipher suites to the
   Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to support the Camellia
   encryption algorithm as a bulk cipher algorithm.

1.  Introduction

   This document proposes the addition of new cipher suites to the TLS
   protocol [TLS] to support the Camellia encryption algorithm as a bulk
   cipher algorithm.  This proposal provides a new option for fast and
   efficient bulk cipher algorithms.

   Note: This work was done when the first author worked for NTT.

1.1.  Camellia

   Camellia was selected as a recommended cryptographic primitive by the
   EU NESSIE (New European Schemes for Signatures, Integrity and
   Encryption) project [NESSIE] and included in the list of
   cryptographic techniques for Japanese e-Government systems, which
   were selected by the Japan CRYPTREC (Cryptography Research and
   Evaluation Committees) [CRYPTREC].  Camellia is also included in
   specification of the TV-Anytime Forum [TV-ANYTIME].  The TV-Anytime
   Forum is an association of organizations that seeks to develop
