The IESG has received a request from the Transport Layer Security WG
(tls) to consider the following document:
- 'Prohibiting RC4 Cipher Suites'
  <draft-ietf-tls-prohibiting-rc4-01.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 2014-12-10. 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 requires that Transport Layer Security (TLS) clients
   and servers never negotiate the use of RC4 cipher suites when they
   establish connections.  This applies to all TLS versions, and updates
   [RFC5246], [RFC4346], and [RFC2246].
