The IESG has received a request from the Transport Layer Security WG
(tls) to consider the following document:
- 'TLS Fallback Signaling Cipher Suite Value (SCSV) for Preventing
   Protocol Downgrade Attacks'
  <draft-ietf-tls-downgrade-scsv-03.txt> as Proposed Standard

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 2015-01-23. 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.

Abstract


   This document defines a Signaling Cipher Suite Value (SCSV) that
   prevents protocol downgrade attacks on the Transport Layer Security
   (TLS) protocol.  It updates RFC 2246, RFC 4346, and RFC 5246.
