Shepherd writeup

The following is the shepherd write-up for draft-ietf-ace-cwt-proof-of-possession-06.

1. Summary

The document shepherd is Roman Danyliw. The responsible Area Director is Benjamin Kaduk.

This document specifies describes how to declare in a CBOR Web Token (CWT) that the presenter of the CWT possesses a particular proof-of-possession key.  It is a functional equivalent to the proof of possession key semantics in JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) (RFC 7800) using CBOR/CWT.

The WG has reached consensus to publish this protocol specification as a Proposed Standard so that it tracks the equivalent work with JWTs (RFC 7800).  It has been subjected to review from the community of interest and the details have been testing through various CWT implementations.

There are two actions for IANA:
(1) Registration of a new URI, urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:yang:ietf-dots-data-channel, in the “IETF XML Registry"; and 
(2) Registration of new YANG module, ietf-dots-data-channel, in the “YANG Module Names” registry
