Hello everyone,

I am sending this for awareness, and potential further feedback if you have any. It refers to draft-truskovsky-lamps-pq-hybrid-x509<https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-truskovsky-lamps-pq-hybrid-x509> . This draft is not a WG item, and we understand it might take some time, but the points that were brought up in IETF-101 were insightful.

We want to investigate the viability of such backward-compatible PQ certs. To encourage fruitful research we made a server publicly available to try to test some of the things discussed. It is here http://test-pqpki.com . As you will see in the Caveats and Next Steps sections of the landing page at http://test-pqpki.com , we are planning to focus on some of the issues that ekr and other WG members brought up in IETF-101 around TLS and the TCP Congestion Window while in TCP Slow Start. And we will focus on more PQ algorithms and overhead of course.
