Dear all,

Here is some possible resolutions for the bug 25839 on curve25519 https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=25839
As required, Microsoft provided on time a contribution aiming to describe curve 25519 in the main specification of Web Crypto API [1]. As announced by the chair [2], the Working Group participants will be asked to vote for the possible following resolutions in order to close that bug.

Possible resolutions :

Resolution one : The WG resolves the bug by closing it and endorsing the curve description provided by Microsoft, as such, in the main W3C Web Crypto API.

Resolution two : The WG resolves the bug by closing it and endorsing the curve description provided by Microsoft, in a dedicated extension, which will have its own track to become a Recommendation.

These resolutions will be submitted to WG participants vote during our call next Monday as announced over the mailing list [3].
