I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's  


ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the  


IESG. These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the  


security area directors. Document editors and WG chairs should treat  


these comments just like any other last call comments.






The draft defines a URI for rsync, and it refers the reader to the  


detailed security considerations of RFC 3986 (Uniform Resource  


Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax), after pointing out that some of  


those considerations do not apply.   This appears to cover the  


security issues.
