TLS/SSL Server Identity Check will be RFC6125
As I’ve previously mentioned, I’ve been working on a specification for “TLS/SSL Server Identity Checking” along with Peter Saint-Andre.
We’ve now heard back from the RFC Editor, and we’re in the so-called “AUTH48 state” where we, the spec’s authors/editors, work with the RFC Editor folks to turn the Internet-Draft into a RFC.
At this point we know the RFC number-to-be: 6125.
So, we’re close to getting this thing out the door, whew.
