I'm looking at implementing AES_XCBC using NSS.  That is:

AES-XCBC-MAC-96: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3566#section-4
AES-XCBC-MAC-PRF: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4434

(the latter adds a recursive rule for building a fixed size key from a
variable key)

reading NSS's "documentation", I've turned up AES_MAC, but I'm
guessing that that is just implementing the primitive
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CBC-MAC using AES.

Is there anything else, or will I be needing to implement things by
wrapping this primitive? (and if so, was there a test I could look at
for the existing code?)


What version of NSS are you targeting ?

Libreswan can handle something not being available in some versions of
NSS. If it is not supported, we'd like the support to be added to a new
version of NSS.

I dont think that currently NSS has support of this XCBC, so you'll have to do 
changes and then compile ?

It's fine for libreswan to not support it if support is missing in NSS.

Whats your scenario? I mean are you going to use this cihersuite for ipsec 
application ?

It will be used as IKE algorithm. IPsec (ESP) crypto is handled by the
