This IBE draft [1] is on next week's IESG telechat. Since
IBE ain't my thang really, I figured I'd check see if
someone here wanted to give it a read from a crypto POV.

There's not too much to this over and above RFC6507 [2] (I
think:-) but this seems to be the first case of a standards
track document making use of 6507 so there's a bit of process
novelty here, even if not much cryptographic novelty.

If you can review, sending comments here, or to the secdir
list, or the IETF list or just to Kathleen and I are all fine
things to do. If you might get to it but aren't sure please
drop me a note.

Oh, and it's not that long: just 16 pages incl. examples:-)

Thanks in advance,
