> Like I said in the post I just made, I see zero problems with having
that requirement on systems that can support it. I don't see why we
must lower the bar for *everyone* just because we currently need to do
so for VMS....
- It is not clear we need to do so
- We are not required to do FIPS level DRBG/CSPRNG this release
- It is probably not appropriate in an API/ABI compatible release
- It is not appropriate for a "silent change"
