This document defines a prooftype involving PKIX over Secure HTTP (POSH) for associating a domain name with an XML stream in the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP). It also defines a method involving HTTPS redirects (appropriate for use with the POSH prooftype) for securely delegating a source domain to a derived domain in XMPP.
