'V'. Licensing Declaration
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):
Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory License to All Implementers with Possible Royalty/Fee
Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information:

It is RedPhone Security’s desire to facilitate the wide-scale adoption of
recent enhancements to the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol including
enhancements that assure additional security properties beyond confidentiality
and data integrity. These enhancements include specific RFC 3546 TLS Extensions
and/or RFC 4680 TLS Supplemental Data messages together with enhancement methods
described in the following Internet Drafts

1. draft-housley-tls-authz-extns
2. draft-housley-tls-evidence-extns

These enhancements are collectively referred to as “RPS enhancements� in
this document.

At the same time, however, RedPhone Security is seeking intellectual property
protection that may cover one or more aspects of the TLS protocol when used with
the RPS enhancements. In particular, RedPhone Security believes its patent
applications listed in Schedule A contain claims that, upon patent issuance, may
limit the practice of the RPS enhancements to the TLS protocol under specific
circumstances.

RedPhone Security encourages any potential user of RPS enhancements to consult
the patent applications listed in Schedule A and any issued patents from such
applications prior to using the enhancements to the TLS protocol in order to
determine whether a license is needed.

Any party wishing to request a license under the patent applications listed in
Schedule A and/or any issued patents from such applications is encouraged to
contact RedPhone Security. Licenses will be issued under fair,
non-discriminatory and non-onerous practices.

Sincerely,


RedPhone Security
