Just to formally close this adoption call…. There was strong consensus to adopt this document as a WG document.  Alan, please publish the next version as a WG draft.

During the Interim WG Meeting in March, there was consensus of those present to adopt the “Deprecating Insecure Uses of RADIUS” draft (" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> as a WG work item.  It has since been pointed out that the consensus from that meeting was not properly confirmed on the mailing list.  Therefore…

We are officially asking the group to confirm the decision made at the March Interim Meeting to adopt" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> as a Working Group work item, to fulfill the following charter item:

  • Deprecating the use of insecure transports outside of secure networks. This work updates RFC 6421.

Please read the draft and send a reply clearly indicating whether you DO SUPPORT or DO NOT SUPPORT adoption of this draft as a WG work item.  Please start a separate thread for any feedback or questions about the document.

Thank you,
