VI. Licensing Declaration:

Patent Holder is the owner of the Patents relating to the Standard. 

Right to Use: 

If technology in this document is included in the Standard adopted by IETF and any claims of any patents 
owned or controlled by Patent Holder are necessary for practicing the Standard, a party will have the limited, 
world-wide, non-transferable right to use any such patent claims under reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, 
with reciprocity, to implement and fully comply with the Standard.

Condition on Right to Sell:

If technology in this document is included in the Standard adopted by IETF and any claims of any patents 
owned or controlled by Patent Holder are necessary for practicing the Standard, a party ("seller") will 
have the limited, world-wide, non-transferable right, subject to the below, to sell a product or service 
implementing any such patent claims under reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to 
implement and fully comply with the Standard.  The seller shall provide a buyer with the following 
written notice:

The use of certain patents in this product or service is subject to the reasonable, non-discriminatory 
terms in the Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Disclosure of Certicom Corp. at the IETF for AES-CCM 
ECC Cipher Suites for TLS implemented in the product or service.

Such written notice may be included in written documentation accompanying tangible hardware or software 
products or embodied in viewable documentation accompanying electronically distributed products or processes.

The reasonable non-discriminatory terms are:

If the Standard is adopted, Patent Holder will not assert the Patents against any party for making, 
using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product that implements the Standard, provided, however, 
that Patent Holder retains the right to assert the Patents (including the right to claim past royalties) 
against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against Patent 
Holder or any of Patent Holder's Affiliates or successors in title or against any products of Patent 
Holder or any products of any of Patent Holder's Affiliates either alone or in combination with other 
products; and Patent Holder retains the right to assert the Patents against any product or portion 
thereof that is not necessary for compliance with the Standard.


"Affiliate" of Certicom Corp. means any legal entity that is for the time being directly or indirectly 
in control of or controlled by Certicom Corp.  Control in this context, exists where one entity owns 
more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting stock or equity in another entity, or regardless of stock 
or equity ownership, is otherwise able to direct its affairs or to appoint a majority of the members 
of the board of directors or an equivalent body to determine the course of action of the entity by 
virtue of its voting or other rights. Such entities shall only be deemed to be Affiliates, 
hereunder for as long as such control exists.

Royalty-bearing licenses will be available to anyone who prefers that option.
