Summary: Almost Ready

Major Concerns:

Section 9:  The document has two different types of keying material:
   (1) keys for hop-by-hop encryption and authentication; and
   (2) keys for end-to-end encryption and authentication.
The first two paragraphs of Section 9 talks about these two types of
keying material.  I think that the discussion should be expanded by a
sentence or two to explain the security consequences of disclosure of
each of theses keying material types.

In addition, a pointer to the very extensive Security Consideration in
RFC 8871 would he helpful.

Minor Concerns:

Section 5.4 says: "Each TLS tunnel established between the media
distributor and the key distributor MUST be mutually authenticated."
Is this a requirement to use DTLS client authentication?  If so,
please be explicit.  If not, what other mechanisms for authentication
are expected?

Section 5.5, paragraph 1:
  s/MUST utilize the same version/MUST contain the same version/

Section 8, last paragraph:
   s/section 4.8 if [!@RFC8126]/Section 4.8 of [RFC8126]/
