               Mathematical Mesh: Platform Configuration
                   draft-hallambaker-mesh-platform-00

Abstract

   The Mathematical Mesh 'The Mesh' is an end-to-end secure
   infrastructure that facilitates the exchange of configuration and
   credential data between multiple user devices.  This document
   describes how Mesh profiles are stored for application access on
   Windows, Linux and OSX platforms.
