       Poll-Based Security Event Token (SET) Delivery Using HTTP
                    draft-ietf-secevent-http-poll-12

Abstract

   This specification defines how a series of Security Event Tokens
   (SETs) can be delivered to an intended recipient using HTTP POST over
   TLS initiated as a poll by the recipient.  The specification also
   defines how delivery can be assured, subject to the SET Recipient's
   need for assurance.
