Technical Summary

   This document specifies the use of the KeyNote trust-management
   system as an authorization extension in the Transport Layer
   Security (TLS) Handshake Protocol, according to [AUTHZ].
   Extensions carried in the client and server hello messages
   confirm that both parties support the desired authorization
   data types. Then, if supported by both the client and the
   server, KeyNote credentials are exchanged during the
   supplemental data handshake message.

Working Group Summary

   This document is an independent submission. 

Document Quality

   While there is no existing implementations of the protocol,
   implementation should be straightforward with appropriate TLS
   toolkits.  Future versions of the keynote distribution are
   expected to include any necessary functionality to encode
   and decode the required data structures.
