This document describes a collection of mechanisms that allow HTTP
servers to cryptographically bind security tokens (such as cookies
and OAuth tokens) to TLS connections.

We describe both first-party and federated scenarios.  In a first-
party scenario, an HTTP server is able to cryptographically bind the
security tokens that it issues to a client -- and that the client
subsequently returns to the server -- to the TLS connection between
the client and the server.  Such bound security tokens are protected
from misuse, since the server can generally detect if they are
replayed inappropriately, e.g., over other TLS connections.

Federated Token Bindings, on the other hand, allow servers to
cryptographically bind security tokens to a TLS connection that the
client has with a different server than the one issuing the token.

This document is a companion document to "The Token Binding Protocol                   
Version 1.0" (RFC 8471).

This document is a product of the Token Binding Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
