A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title		: Secure Session Key Generation. Creating PRF from MAC 
	Author(s)	: U. Blumenthal

This document describes Pseudo Random Function (PRF) based on 
MAC function (keyed iterated hash function), and offers a ref-
erence implementation of PRF based on SHA-1. 
This PRF can be used to produce cryptographic keys for authen-
tication/integrity and encryption. It uses pre-shared secret 
and publicly known random value (and possibly partiesĘ identi-
ties). The main advantage of this algorithm over other similar 
ones is that its security is formally tied to the MAC property 
of the underlying function.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
