Have any of you tried decrypting these updated examples?  I plan on using them in the next release of the JWE spec, but would like confirmation that they're correct.

                                                                Thanks again,
                                                                -- Mike

Subject: Updated JWE encryption examples

Here's updated encryption examples incorporating the proposed JWE/JWA changes.  In summary, changes in these computations are:

*         Updated the Concat KDF calculation, per yesterday's e-mail

*         Consolidated the "enc", "int", and "kdf" parameters into a composite "enc" parameter, with new AES CBC "enc" values "A128CBC+HS256" and "A256CBC+HS512"

*         Moved initialization vector out of the header into its own dot-separated parameter value (to save space and to factor it out for the JSON Serialization), with the JWE representation becoming header.encryptedKey.initializationVector.ciphertext.integrityValue

The examples attached are:

*         JWE.log:  Will be used to create the new AES-CBC example in Section 3.2 and Appendix A.2 of the JWE specification

*         JWE2.log:  Will be used to create the new AES-GCM example in Section 3.1 and Appendix A.1 of the JWE specification

It would be great if any of you can verify that you can decrypt these results!

                                                            Thanks again,
                                                            -- Mike
