Regarding capport-api, in the section 4.1.1 Server Authentication, is 
this advice different than the authentication done by any other HTTPS 
client? It seems like this section should just be referencing another 
document (but I don't know).

Also, I think the API document should give some guidance about caching 
indicators from the server side (I'm not sure what this should be, 

Also, I think the API document needs to explain how user equipment is to 
be identified.

I'm making editorial pull requests in github.
