The IESG has received a request from the Hypertext Transfer Protocol
Authentication WG (httpauth) to consider the following document:
- 'Mutual Authentication Protocol for HTTP'
  <draft-ietf-httpauth-mutual-10.txt> as Experimental RFC

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2016-10-25. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document specifies a mutual authentication scheme for the
   Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).  This scheme provides true mutual
   authentication between an HTTP client and an HTTP server using
   password-based authentication.  Unlike the Basic and Digest
   authentication schemes, the Mutual authentication scheme specified in
   this document assures the user that the server truly knows the user's
   encrypted password.
