Technical Summary

   This document specifies a new certificate type and two TLS extensions
   for exchanging raw public keys in Transport Layer Security (TLS) and
   Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) for use with out-of-band
   public key validation

Working Group Summary

   In general the consensus around the document is strong.  The main area
   of contention was in the reuse of the certificate type registry.  This has
   been satisfactorily resolved.

   progress.  This document has had review by members of
   the DANE working group and the LWIG working group.
