The IESG has received a request from the Secure Telephone Identity Revisited WG (stir) to consider the following document: - 'Personal Assertion Token (PASSporT)' <draft-ietf-stir-passport-09.txt> as Proposed Standard
The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the i...@ietf.org mailing lists by 2016-11-01. Exceptionally, comments may be sent to i...@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting. Abstract This document defines a method for creating and validating a token that cryptographically verifies an originating identity, or more generally a URI or telephone number representing the originator of personal communications. The PASSporT token is cryptographically signed to protect the integrity of the identity the originator and to verify the assertion of the identity information at the destination. The cryptographic signature is defined with the intention that it can confidently verify the originating persona even when the signature is sent to the destination party over an insecure channel. PASSporT is particularly useful for many personal communications applications over IP networks and other multi-hop interconnection scenarios where the originating and destination parties may not have a direct trusted relationship. The file can be obtained via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-stir-passport/ IESG discussion can be tracked via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-stir-passport/ballot/ No IPR declarations have been submitted directly on this I-D.
