The TLS WG met at 9 AM on Thu March 26

We have three documents in various stages of being almost finished:

TLS Exporters: finished WGLC. Only editorial comments. Needs
a new draft and then can go to the IESG.
TLS Extensions: needs a new straightforward revision and then WGLC.
DTLS 1.2: ready for WGLC

We had a presentation from Stefan Santesson about a protocol for
caching server information on the client to reduce handshake size
(this is a modification of the old Fast Track concept). The WG decided
to take on this work.

We also had a presentation from Michael Williams about DTLS MOBI-D,
an application mobility solution for DTLS. There was some enthusiasm
for this work, but we recognize that it is substantial work and impacts
areas outside of TLS. The Chairs will work with the ADs to work out
how best to proceed.
