RedPhone Security has revised its patent-pending claims before the patent cooperation treaty (PCT), and intends to make similar changes to all pending patent applications around the world.

RedPhone Security hereby asserts that the techniques for sending and receiving authorizations defined in TLS Authorizations Extensions (version draft-housley-tls-authz-extns-07.txt) may be practiced without infringing upon RedPhone Security's intellectual property rights (IPR). RedPhone Security reserves the right to provide further Statements regarding its IPR with respect to any future or subsequent versions of TLS Authorizations Extensions.

To the extent that the TLS Authorizations Extensions can be implemented more specifically than described in version draft-housley-tls-authz-extns-07.txt and thereby used to practice one or more specific techniques covered by RedPhone Security's revised patent claims, RedPhone Security agrees to grant licenses for such uses in a fair and nondiscriminatory manner.
