Hi all,

I looked again at the keyinfra draft and did not recognize an explicit 
description of the purpose of securing the network with the bootstrap.

As far as I understood there are 2 objectives;

Neither does the text tell us how this is achieved once the bootstrap

Do we aim at a specific protocol or do we want to leave this open?
