V. Licensing Declaration

The Patent Holder states that its position with respect to licensing any patent claims contained in the patent(s) or patent application(s) disclosed above that would necessarily be infringed by implementation of the technology required by the relevant IETF specification ("Necessary Patent Claims"), for the purpose of implementing such specification, is as follows(select one licensing declaration option only):

Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory License to All Implementers with Possible Royalty/Fee
Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information

Free licensing should apply to the implementers of the "relying party" functionsin standards-tract IETF documents. The economic value of the technology appears
to lie with the trust anchor issuer role. Contact the patent holder for
licensing details in line with these principles.

The patent holder intends to grant a free, worldwide, and time-unlimited
license to anyone who uses processes covered by the above patent application TO
THE EXTENT THAT any such otherwise potentially infringing activity is performed
with free software licensed under the terms of GNU General Public License
Version 2. Formalities are under way for this non-discriminatory and gratuitous
license (to the extent that acceptance and compliance with GPL provisions is
"no-cost") to become formally available to parties unrelated to the patent

Note: The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that he or she is authorized by the Patent Holder to agree to the above-selected licensing declaration.
