Magnus,

Brian and I found a description for KDF3 (on a site that reference ISO-18033-2) where the definition is different than the KDF specified in SP800-56A. The site does have a link to a near final draft of ISO 18033-2, but that draft does not include any mention of KDF3.

Since I don't have access to the final version ISO-18033-2 and cannot find an official definition for KDF3, can you provide the official definition for KDF3? I just wanted to make sure we are not confusing implementers by using the name KDF3 in XMLEnc.

Thanks,

Kelvin
