           Transport Layer Security (TLS) Authorization Using
      Digital Transmission Content Protection (DTCP) Certificates

Abstract

   This document specifies the use of Digital Transmission Content
   Protection (DTCP) certificates as an authorization data type in the
   authorization extension for the Transport Layer Security (TLS)
   protocol.  This is in accordance with the guidelines for
   authorization extensions as specified in RFC 5878.  As with other TLS
   extensions, this authorization data can be included in the client and
   server hello messages to confirm that both parties support the
   desired authorization data types.  If supported by both the client
   and the server, DTCP certificates are exchanged in the supplemental
   data TLS handshake message as specified in RFC 4680.  This
   authorization data type extension is in support of devices containing
   DTCP certificates issued by the Digital Transmission Licensing
   Administrator (DTLA).

1.  Introduction

   The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol (see TLS 1.0 [RFC2246],
   TLS 1.1 [RFC4346], and TLS1 .2 [RFC5246]) is being used in an ever
   increasing variety of operational environments, the most common among
   which is its use in securing HTTP traffic [RFC2818].  [RFC5878]
