Hi there,

I just submitted a new revision of d draft-reschke-basicauth-enc - see 
below (HTML version at 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-reschke-basicauth-enc-04.html>; 
this version also includes new hooks for providing feedback; please try!).

At this point, I'd like to solicit additional feedback before I proceed; 
in particular: should this potentially be an Applications Area WG 
deliverable?

With respect to intended status: in theory, this is a candidate for 
Experimental. However, Basic Authentication (as defined in RFC 2617) 
doesn't have a registry for extension parameters, so the cleanest 
approach appears to say "Updates 2617", which IMHO requires a standards 
track document.

Best regards, Julian

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories.

	Title           : An Encoding Parameter for HTTP Basic Authentication
	Author(s)       : Julian F. Reschke
	Filename        : draft-reschke-basicauth-enc-04.txt
	Pages           : 9
	Date            : 2012-01-29

    The "Basic" authentication scheme defined in RFC 2617 does not
    properly define how to treat non-ASCII characters.  This has lead to
    a situation where user agent implementations disagree, and servers
    make different assumptions based on the locales they are running in.
    There is little interoperability for characters in the ISO-8859-1
    character set, and even less interoperability for any characters
    beyond that.

    This document defines a backwards-compatible extension to "Basic",
    specifying the server's character encoding expectation, using a new
    authentication scheme parameter.
