Body
1 Overview 

The Open Mobile Alliance's (OMA) Browser and Content (BAC) Broadcast (BCAST)
group's Service and Content Protection specification defines the use of a
short term key message (STKM) and a long term key message (LTKM) that carry
attributes related to service and content protection.  An IETF draft,
draft-dondeti-msec-mikey-genext-oma, specifies the use of the General
Extension payload of MIKEY (RFC 3830) to carry the LTKMs or STKMs.  For that
purpose, OMA BCAST requests IANA registration of a new MIKEY General Extension
Payload.

 
2 Requested Action(s) 

BCAST kindly asks expedited processing of draft-dondeti-msec-mikey-genext-oma
and requests registration of a new MIKEY General Extension Payload for use by
OMA BCAST specifications.  The contents of the payload itself are defined in
the OMA Service and Content protection specification and are not provided in
the IETF draft.  The IETF draft along with the OMA Service and Content
protection specification have sufficient detail for interoperable
implementations.

We thank you for your consideration.
