Hi all,

Following on from discussion in Toronto in appaswg and saag,
and a subsequent request, we've created a mailing list for
discussing this topic. Pete Resnick and I will initially
manage the list. If you're interested, please subscribe.
Once Pete and I figure there's a good enough set of folks
subscribed we'll fire off a starter email. That usually takes
a few days, so probably Wed-Thu this week.

The list [1] description is:

There is significant interest in improving the
privacy-related properties of Internet mail. One focus of
current efforts is on the per-hop (connection-based)
protections provided by TLS. However a wide range of other
work has a focus on end-to-end protection, at the Internet
scale of billions of end users and perhaps millions of
operators. Such work typically involves new forms of mail
header or body protection, new public key management
(compared to S/MIME or PGP), and security mechanisms more
appropriate for mobile/web user-agents. Other
security-relevant approaches may be discussed if needed.
Various proposals and development efforts on this topic are
underway outside the IETF. This mailing list provides an
IETF venue for discussion of elements that might be commonly
needed by such efforts and to identify work that the IETF
could do to aid in achieving better end-to-end security
deployed for Internet email.

Cheers,
S.
