This Internet-Draft proposes the addition of a "channel bound" return flag for the GSS_Init_sec_context() and GSS_Accept_sec_context() functions. Two behaviors are specified: a default, safe behavior, and a behavior that is only safe when the application specifically tells the Generic Security Services Application Programming Interface (GSS-API) that it (the applicaiton) supports the new behavior.
