The IESG has received a request from the Secure Telephone Identity
Revisited WG (stir) to consider the following document:
- 'Personal Assertion Token (PASSporT)'

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

the originating and destination parties may not have a direct trusted
