[W3C Web Crypto WG] CfC : Call for Consensus on the integration of curve25519 in WG deliverables (please vote until the 26th of August)

Dear all,

I would like to call for consensus on the way we will move forward with the contribution provided by Trevor Perrin describing Curve25519 operation [1]. We discussed several options and I would like to submit the following resolution to your vote.

Proposed resolution : the WG agrees on the principle that Curve25519 will be added to Web Crypto WG deliverables as an extension to the Web Crypto API specification. An extension being here a separate specification having its own Recommendation Track.

Deadline : votes have to be expressed expected until 26th of August 23:59 UTC
Guideline for voting : reply to all to this mail, indicating, +1 if you agree with the resolution, -1 means if you object, 0 if you can live with it. While silence means implicit endorsement of the resolution, explicit expression of vote is encouraged, to help the chair measuring the enthusiasm of the WG participants.

Note the following additional information :

-          This extension will be used as a beta test for the extensibility mechanism that we need to address as raised in bug 25618

-          The proposed editor is Trevor, as long as Trevor agrees to maintain the document

-          This resolution does not imply that the draft submitted by Trevor is endorsed in its current state, as the WG did not have a chance to discuss the content. The discussion about that content can be conducted over the mailing list, or during a dedicated call, where we will invite Trevor.

Have a great week !
Chair of the Web Crypto WG
