+# Overview of Security Properties {#security-properties}
+A complete security analysis of QUIC is outside the scope of this document.  In
+this appendix, we provide an informal description of the desired security
+properties as an aid to implementors and to help guide protocol analysis.
+We cover properties of the handshake, general transport, and migration
+## Handshake {#handshake-properties}
