This memo introduces a new message type into the Secure Shell (SSH) Transport Layer Protocol whose meaning and contents are defined by a name at the start of the message, thus allowing for further extensions to the protocol to be implemented without using further message numbers. Comments are solicited and should be addressed to the mailing list at <ietf-ssh@NetBSD.org> or to the author.
