Technical Summary This document defines an extension to the TLS protocol to support the use of OpenPGP public keys in places where TLS normally uses X.509 certificates. Working Group Summary This document is a product of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) Working Group, and is a continuation of an earlier draft (started already in 1999) which used different ciphersuites for PGP keys. The document was reviewed by TLS WG members and chairs. Protocol Quality The TLS extension described in this document is implemented in at least one open source TLS library. This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG. Note to RFC Editor Please replace the first sentence of section 5. OLD: This document defines a new TLS extension, "cert_type", assigned a value of TBD-BY-IANA (the value 7 is suggested) from the TLS ExtensionType registry defined in [TLSEXT]. NEW: This document defines a new TLS extension, "cert_type", assigned a value of TBD-BY-IANA from the TLS ExtensionType registry defined in [TLSEXT].
