This message is to confirm the consensus reached @ the IETF 92 TLS session in Dallas and at the TLS Interim in Seattle to make the TLS 1.3 PRF be an HKDF-based PRF (see http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/rfc5869/?include_text=1).

Please indicate whether or not you agree with the consensus by 2015-04-17.  If not, please indicate why.  Also, please note that we’re interested in uncovering new issues not rehashing issues already discussed.

Thanks - J&S
