TOR exists because the network layer doesn’t have sufficient security. I’m preaching to the choir.

It is useful because there is usually no technical discussion among people from different areas of expertise. The discussion tend to happen when a decision like this is made.

So I’ll take the discussion whenever I can get it!

I am trying to design a system. And we need more deployment experience. And I think an IETF working group can help facilitate this. Otherwise, people will do it else where and new protocols will surface OUTSIDE of the IETF. And that is when scale, security and interoperability is not priority. 

In the IETF, we are for the common good.
