RSA-PSS and RSA-OAEP require the developer to specify a hash function and a masking generating function via an AlgorithmIdentifier.

dictionary RsaPssParams : AlgorithmParameters {
  // The hash function to apply to the message
  AlgorithmIdentifier hash;
  
  // The mask generation function
  AlgorithmIdentifier mgf;
  
  // The desired length of the random salt
  unsigned long saltLength;
};

There are specified algorithm identifiers in the document for hash function.  But there are none for MGFs.  We should probably add some.
