Standardising specific elliptic curves

There is considerable ongoing discussion by standardisation committees about precisely which elliptic curves should be specified in crypto standards. One point of view on the merits of different choices is presented on the safe curves webpage, of Bernstein and Lange. These views are not unanimously held. The IETF discussions can be found here.

NIST will be holding a workshop in June 2015 to discuss these questions further.
