A new IETF non-working group email list has been created.

List address:
To subscribe:

This mailing list exists to discuss how to best document a definition of end-to-end encryption (E2EE).
In brief, it is an application of cryptography in communications systems between endpoints. 
E2EE systems are unique in providing features of confidentiality, integrity and authenticity for users. 
Improvements to E2EE strive to maximise the system's security while balancing usability and availability.
Users of E2EE communications expect trustworthy providers of secure implementations to respect and protect 
their right to whisper. The IETF is the appropriate venue for this discussion and hopes the mailing list discussion
results in a published RFC series document.

This list belongs to IETF area: SEC
