> The IESG has approved the following document:

> Technical Summary
> 
> This document specifies the syntax and semantics for Elliptic Curve (EC)
> private key information.  This syntax and semantics defined therein are
> based on a similar syntax and semantics defined in Standards for
> Efficient Cryptography Group (SECG).  It is profiled for the IETF as the
> ECPublicKey structure from SECG is profiled for the IETF in RFC 5480.
> 
> Working Group Summary
> 
> The publication announcement for this I-D was forwarded to the PKIX WG
> for comment. Reviews resulted in 3 versions.  The 1st revision replaced
> the conversion routine with an existing routine from RFC 3447 (reuse is
> better than reinventing), added an acknowledgments section, and updated
> a reference for Base64 encodings.  The 2nd revision added an other
> considerations section to discuss transfer and local storage encoding
> and required the presence of parameters.
> 
> Document Quality
> 
> This text is short (4 pages) and so is the ASN.1 (5 lines).  It is based
> on the SECG document whose text and ASN.1 has been stable for many
> years.  OpenSSL supports the structure as defined in this document.
