Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   RFC 7589 defines how to protect NETCONF messages with TLS 1.2.  This
   document updates RFC 7589 to update support requirements for TLS 1.2
   and add TLS 1.3 support requirements, including restrictions on the
   use of TLS 1.3's early data.

Working Group Summary

   Good support, nothing rough, very smooth sailing.

Document Quality

   Short, but well written.  I don't know if there are implementations yet,
   but they will very likely follow over time, and we should update
   security best-practice regardless.

Personnel

   The Document Shepherd for this document is Kent Watsen.
   The Responsible Area Director is Robert Wilton.
