Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information

SSH Communications Oyj (“SSH”) has patent GB2571576 granted in the UK, together with other national patents and patent applications claiming priority on the same (“Subject Patents”). SSH understands IETF is considering to include the technology protected in the Subject Patents in future versions of the Internet Protocol Security (“Future IPSec RFCs"). In the event that any claims of the Subject Patents are necessarily infringed by such future version of IPSec (“Essential Claims”), SSH agrees, upon written request from a party, to negotiate with that party a non-sublicenseable license to the Essential Claims under reasonable and non-discriminatory terms and conditions, taking into consideration the other technologies implemented in the same product, solely to the extent necessary to implement required portions of the Future IPSec RFCs, provided that the party grants a reciprocal license to SSH and provided that the license terminates if the party initiates a claim of patent infringement, directly or indirectly, against SSH, its subsidiaries, or its affiliates.

Note: The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that he or she is authorized by the Patent Holder to agree to the above-selected licensing declaration.
