> Abstract:
>   Identifiers such as hostnames, URIs, and email addresses are often
>   used in security contexts to identify security principals and
>   resources.  In such contexts, an identifier supplied via some
>   protocol is often compared against some policy to make security
>   decisions such as whether the principal may access the resource, what
>   level of authentication or encryption is required, etc.  If the
>   parties involved in a security decision use different algorithms to
>   compare identifiers, then failure scenarios ranging from denial of
>   service to elevation of privilege can result.
