The Patent Holder states that its position with respect to licensing any patent claims contained in the patent(s) or patent application(s) disclosed above that would necessarily be infringed by implementation of the technology required by the relevant IETF specification ("Necessary Patent Claims"), for the purpose of implementing such specification, is as follows(select one licensing declaration option only):

If the SCVP draft (ietf-pkix-scvp-18) is adopted as a standard by the IETF,
and any claim in any of the Patents is necessary for implementing such
standard, CoreStreet will negotiate royalty-bearing licenses of the Patents
on reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms and conditions for at least any
part or function of a product or service that is technically necessary for
compliance with such standard, including a royalty-bearing license for any
claim(s) of the Patents that would otherwise be infringed by an SCVP server
to determine certificate revocation for Delegated Path Validation (DPV),
provided that the royalty-bearing license is restricted to such use. In
addition, CoreStreet will grant a royalty-free license for any claim(s) of
the Patents that would otherwise be infringed by any product that implements
an SCVP client, provided that the royalty-free license is restricted to such
use. CoreStreet's obligation to grant any such license(s) is conditioned
upon the prospective licensee paying reasonable royalties for the
royalty-bearing license(s) and, in any case, granting a reciprocal license
to CoreStreet (and its successors) of its applicable patent rights. Except
as provided above, CoreStreet reserves its rights in its intellectual

property rights that are necessarily infringed by implementation of a
standard with respect to which a person is contributing; in our case, the

currently drafted) need not necessarily infringe our patents and, for this
and other reasons, believes no disclosure of our patents has been or is
