Hi lists,

The IEEE standards Std 1363-2000 and Std 1363a-2004 provide
standard specifications for public-key cryptography for use
by electrical and electronics engineers. Std 1363-2000 is
due for revision this year, which will involve merging
Std 1363a with the base Std 1363. As part of this revision 
and merger process the working group will be considering 
submissions for additions and amendments to the existing 
documents. These submissions can include anything from 
notifications of new security results to requests that
techniques in the standard be added, modified or deleted.

This mail is a pre-call for submissions for the revised
document. An official call for submissions will follow in
the new year. We anticipate that the submissions period will
last till approximately July 31st, 2006, so we can start
discussing submissions at the working group meeting that
traditionally follows Crypto.

To buy a copy of Std 1363 and 1363a, follow the links at
the 1363 Working Group website,

Submissions should be sent to me directly for posting on

technical editor: anyone interested should contact me directly.

Best wishes,
