RFC 5116 defines algorithms for Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data (AEAD) , and defines a uniform interface and a registry for such algorithms.

Authenticated encryption [1] is a form of encryption that, in addition to providing confidentiality for the plaintext that is encrypted, provides a way to check its authenticity.

Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data, or AEAD [2], adds the ability to check the integrity and authenticity of some Associated Data (AD), also called "additional authenticated data", that is not encrypted.

There is an Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data (AEAD) Parameters IANA Registry
