This'll be elsewhere, but no harm having it in the archive
too.

S.

The perpass list is for discussion of the privacy properties
of IETF protocols and concrete ways in which those could be
improved. The list is not intended to be a precursor to formation of a
Working Group, but rather to (for example) discuss ways in which
IETF protocols at any layer can be made more robust against
pervasive passive monitoring. If subsequent protocol work
is to be done in the IETF, that would likely happen in
existing or new protocol-specific Working Groups.
