Attached is our first draft of the DTN Bundle Security Protocol
Specification. Please read it and provide comments. Ideally we would like to
have an 01 draft available by mid July, in time to be considered at the next
IETF meeting, so we would appreciate receiving your comments in time to be
considered for the next draft.
This Bundle Security Protocol  will require the following changes to the
base Bundle Protocol Specification:
- need a Statment in the Bundle Protocol that  security is RECOMMENDED to
implement and OPTIONAL to use 
-- need a new Confidentiality header type
- need to remove text about authenticating the BAH from the bundle
processing steps
- need to remove BAH and PSH header format descriptions
- need an at-most-once delivery parameter of the Register.request primitive
- need to remove the primary bundle header security flags field
- need to add a sender field to the primary bundle header 
- in description of forwarding steps, need to put the endpoint ID of the
sending bundle protocol agent into 
  the dictionary (if   it's not already there) and place its offset in the
sender field before forwarding the bundle
- need modifications to the send.Request and Data.Indication Delivery
Options Security parameters to 
  be able to pass appropriate parameter (e.g., ciphersuite parameters)
Thanks for your interest,
