Dear all,

During the discussion related to Netconf over TLS, I did get the
impression that many WG members thought that PSK-based authentication is
not suitable for Netconf, and the NETCONF over TLS specification doesn't
need to mention it at all.

I think there are two basic options:

(A) Don't mention PSK-based authentication at all.

(B) Keep the current text.

The motivations for option (A) is detailed by Tom Petch
(http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/netconf/current/msg03854.html) and
by Juergen Schoenwaelder
(http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/netconf/current/msg03817.html)

Please express you preference on the list for one of these two options by
the WGLC deadline.

Best regards,
Badra
