Technical Summary

   This document describes an extensibility mechanism for the Kerberos
   v5 protocol when used over TCP transports.
Working Group Summary
   This document represents the consensus of the Kerberos Working
   Group.  There was a concern raised by at least one person that this
   document should  not be advanced until there was at least one
   extension that intended to use it.  The consensus of the WG was that
   the document was sufficiently mature to be a proposed standard.

Protocol Quality
   At least one implementor has indicated an intent to implement both
   this extension mechanism and an extension which makes use of it.
   Others have indicated no current plans to do so, but this is not
   surprising given the (current) lack of standards-track extensions
   which make use of this mechanism.
   The document shepherd for this document was Jeffrey Hutzelman.
