Technical Summary

This document specifies Version 1.2 of the Datagram Transport Layer 
Security (DTLS) protocol. The DTLS protocol provides communications 
privacy for datagram protocols. The protocol allows client/server 
applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent 
eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery. The DTLS protocol is based 
on the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol and provides equivalent 
security guarantees. Datagram semantics of the underlying transport are 
preserved by the DTLS protocol. This document updates DTLS 1.0 to work 
with TLS version 1.2.

Working Group Summary

This document has been extensively reviewed int he working group. There 
is strong consensus to move the document forward. The document completed 
working group last call last year, but was delayed during the discussion 
of other higher priority documents.

Document Quality

There are several vendors who implement DTLS 1.1. Vendors have indicated
they would support DTLS 1.2 to take advantage of AEAD cipher suites. The 
document has ve reviewed by security and transport experts. The document 
has been reviewed by implementers.
