Hi Tobias

The abstract does say that "The memo describes a possible deployment model suitable", the keyword being "a". I agree that the title is a bit broad but that is because in section 13 and 14, we discuss some broader trade offs of doing security at the different layers of the protocol stack. Perhaps the abstract could use text "The memo describes a possible deployment model where resource-constrained devices sign message objects, discusses the availability of cryptographic libraries for small devices". If you think this change is needed, I could update the draft and hopefully we don't have to do another last call for this minor fix.

Hey Mohit,
I see your point and that it is out of scope for the document. However, I feel 
the title and the abstract is then a bit misleading and should say that this 
document discusses security architectures and cryptographic functions for 
authentication/signing only?
Just a thought to avoid missunderstandings.
Regards
Tobias

Hi Carsten

This document looks at a very specific deployment scenario where 
resource-constrained devices sign message objects. Therefore, it only documents 
the performance of ECDSA sign operation.

I do think the numbers of Elliptic curve diffie-hellman key agreement are 
useful for the community and the group should work on documenting them. I did 
discuss this with Tobias (off-the-mailing list) and perhaps those numbers can 
go in a separate document on minimal G-IKEv2. I currently have a working 
implementation of x25519 Diffie-hellman key agreement on a R Pi but I don't 
consider it constrained enough. Once I have more numbers, I will definitely 
contribute. But for now I strongly believe that they don't fit into the current 
document.

Hi Mohit,

One point that came up in the discussion in Prague was Diffie-Hellman 
performance.
For a deployment that relies on symmetric keys for mutual authentication, it 
may be useful to do an (ECC) D-H key agreement to achieve forward security.
I believe some numbers for that are available?
It would be useful to include them in order to motivate the use of forward 
secure key agreement.

Grüße, Carsten

Hi all

The authors of the document believe that it is ready to move forward. During 
the previous last call we had already received support from several working 
group members.

Based on the feedback during the previous last call, we removed the performance 
measurements of RSA key sizes smaller than 2048 bits. We also added performance 
measurements of ECDSA sign operation on ARM 32-bit platforms. Additionally, we 
improved the text on the need for a random number generator, more guidance on 
choosing the right platform, and why larger flash memory size is needed for 
firmware updates. We also removed some extraneous text from the background 
section. Any further comments are welcome.

Hello Everyone,

This email starts the WGLC for draft-ietf-lwig-crypto-sensors-03
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-lwig-crypto-sensors-03

This is a second WGLC with the new draft resolving the comments
received from last round.

We still appreciate very much if could you help review the document
and send your comments to the mailing list. Thank you in advance.

The WGLC will end in ONE week till August 7th, 2017.

Thank the authors for their hard work again.

Best regards,
Zhen
