Response to "Request to reserve TLS extension type for ITU-T draft Recommendation X.tsm-1"
|From Contact||Pasi Eronen|
I have understood that Yoshiaiki Isobe contacted Harald Alvestrand and Thomas Narten about this topic in December 2006; at that time, Harald provided advice similar to the following. RFC 4366 Section 5 defines the procedures for assigning a new TLS extension type. TLS extension types are assigned to Internet-Drafts that have been approved by the IESG. So, you need to publish your extension as an Internet-Draft and seek review of your draft. Once you have built a sufficient consensus behind your draft, you can propose that your draft be adopted by the TLS working group or published as an Area Director (AD) sponsored submission. Sections 3.2 and 4 of RFC 4775 provide more details on the procedures for an SDO working with the IETF to extend an IETF protocol in this way. Note that because of the requirements of RFC 4366, only the first option discussed in Section 4 is available in this instance. The TLS working group chairs and security ADs will be happy to answer any process questions you may have as you attempt to build consensus behind your draft.
