To those considering the TLS-authz proposal:
The patent shenanigans of RedPhone Security have reduced implementation
status from "open" to "taxed at the whim of RedPhone Security." This
should be enough to disqualify the proposal from further consideration
unless, and until, RedPhone Security grants a royalty-free license for
The imprimatur of the IETF should remain reserved for open standards.
Thank you for considering my position.
