Internet-Drafts

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Common Authentication Technology Next Generation of the IETF.

        Title           : Channel Binding Signalling for the Generic Security Services Application Programming Interface
        Author          : Nicolas Williams
        Filename        : draft-ietf-kitten-channel-bound-flag-01.txt
        Pages           : 10

Abstract:
   Channel binding is a technique that allows applications to use a
   secure channel at a lower layer without having to use authentication
   at that lower layer.  The concept of channel binding comes from the
   Generic Security Services Application Programming Interface (GSS-
   API).  It turns out that the semantics commonly implemented are
   different that those specified in the base GSS-API RFC (RFC2743), and
   that that specification has a serious bug.  This document addresses
   both, the inconsistency as-implemented and the specification bug.

   This Internet-Draft proposes the addition of a "channel bound" return
   flag for the GSS_Init_sec_context() and GSS_Accept_sec_context()
   functions.  Two behaviors are specified: a default, safe behavior
   reflecting existing implementation deployments, and a behavior that
   is only safe when the application specifically tells the GSS-API that
   it (the application) supports the new behavior.  Additional API
   elements related to this are also added, including a new security
   context establishment API.
