License Management

Key Management

John suggested that that some statement be made regarding private key exchange. He also noted that the working group hasn't taken a position on trust management, but that the certificate recommendation lays the groundwork for future work in that space. He also noted that we haven't said anything about digests and digest related key exchange. The terminology in the existing LRM's needs to be reconciled with our work/definitions in P1735 so that readers don't get lost.

Dave G asked for a presentation on the risks and benefits of certificates, certificate authorities, and the effects they might have on industry business practices. Ray and Dave G suggested that our published recommendations should clearly address strategies for maintaining IP security through appropriate trust management practices.
