for receiving those messages you don't have to do anything above what the specification already requires for sending the implementations already have to be able to fragment their messages - the change is only to make the value that guards those sizes a variable instead of being hardcoded that leaves the matter of negotiation of the value itself - which, while it is yet another extension that needs to be supported, it is not exactly complex or that requires convoluted logic > On 1 December 2016 at 00:22, Hubert Kario <hka...@redhat.com> wrote: > > On Wednesday, 30 November 2016 11:20:01 CET Martin Thomson wrote: > >> On 30 November 2016 at 05:54, Thomas Pornin <por...@bolet.org> wrote: > >> > Any comments? > >> > >> I'm ambivalent on this generally: though I think that the general > >> notion is OK, I'm not sure about the details. > >> > >> In particular, you need to be clearer in your motivations: the point > >> is to ensure that little things (really little things) can talk to any > >> other TLS implementation.
