Additional Notes:

draft-ietf-hokey-rfc5296bis is, as the name suggests, an update to RFC 5296. There was an IPR declaration filed against RFC 5296 [1] but so far there have been no IPR declarations for this draft. There doesn't seem to have been any radical change since then so one might conclude that whatever IPR applied to that might apply to this too. But who knows with IPR. (Not me anyway;-)

The folks who declared about 5296 were mailed, but have yet to respond as far as I know but I want to get the IETF last call started so this should do for that.


B. Does this disclosure relate to an unpublished pending patent application?: NO
C. If an Internet-Draft or RFC includes multiple parts and it is not reasonably apparent which part of such Internet-Draft or RFC is alleged to be covered by the patent information disclosed in Section V(A) or V(B), it is helpful if the discloser identifies here the sections of the Internet-Draft or RFC that are alleged to be so covered:

No idea sorry. There are patent numbers in the declaration for 5296 which I guess could help if you can bear to read 'em.
