Hi,

I can change the table into a list.

Note that the key encrypting key has three specific values. If there are entries for certain special wrapped key sizes for a particular key encrypting key size, then Other means other values of wrapped key size. For a key encrypting key size of 192, there are no special requirement levels for wrapped key sizes so the entry applies to All wrapped key sizes. It would clearly be wrong to put "All" anywhere in this table where it now says "Other" or vice versa. Perhaps I should have made the key encrypting key values of 128 and 256, which have multiple lines in the table, be vertically spanning so it would be more visually obvious.

The best I can come up with for AES key wrap reference is "AES Key Management" <http://csrc.nist.gov/encryption/kms/>.

Donald

Thank you Donald, it's now in version FOO.

1. I've tweaked this (and much of 5) such that variables and equations are 
within <code/> elements.
2. We found it advantageous in the past to avoid a table, and I wonder if 
we might do the same here.
3. Within the table, what is the difference between any and other?
4. Do we have a reference to the AES Key Wrap document?
