GOST is the Russian equivalent of NIST. They publish cryptography
standards, amongst other things. There are RFCs describing how to
use GOST crypto with TLS, DNSSEC, etc.

You might need working GOST crypto if you are working closely with
Russian government agencies. In other circumstances you can probably
ignore it.
