Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2014-02-20 16:07:17 PST
As AES-KW can only wrap keys that are 8*n bytes bytes long, wrapping a CryptoKey in JWK format is only possible when the exported key happens to be of that size.

See <https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=24457>. We should probably wait to see if a particular form of padding gets prescribed.

When done, we should re-add a subtest to crypto/subtle/aes-kw-wrap-unwrap-aes.html that was removed in <http://trac.webkit.org/r163244>.

Per discussion of the W3C thread and the most updated spec:
https://www.w3.org/TR/WebCryptoAPI/#aes-kw-operations, and Editor's draft:

This padding restriction becomes a check on the wrapKey operation of AES-KW. Therefore, this bug is obsolete.
