RFC 3552 introduces a threat model that does not include endpoint security. In the fifteen years since RFC 3552 security issues and cyber attacks have increased, especially on the endpoint. This document proposes a new approach to Internet cyber security protocol development that focuses on the user of the Internet, namely those who use the endpoint and are the most vulnerable to attacks.
