Technical Summary

Certificates and other cryptographic credentials are ungainly things, not 
suitable to human memorization.  While smart cards and the like are one 
possible solution, they're not widely deployed or used for general-purpose
computing.  The SACRED protocol permits remote storage and retrieval of 
such credentials.

Working Group Summary

There was working group consensus on this document.
