Hello URN/Apps folks, and SAAG folks:

A new version of the Internet-Draft draft-seantek-certspec (01) has been posted to the IETF repository. I would like to notify this list for commentary, and utlimately to apply for the URN NID 'cert'.

Compared to 00 last year, this version adds discussion of the need for a uniform way to identify certificates by name in a URI/URN, the differences between this naming scheme and the ni: URI scheme (RFC 6920), and a methodology to /resolve/ certain various classes of cert URNs to ni, http, ldap, and other URI schemes.

Kind regards,

Sean

Number of pages: 13
URL:             http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-seantek-certspec-01.txt

Abstract:
  Digital certificates are used in many systems and protocols to
  identify and authenticate parties.  This document describes a Uniform
  Resource Name (URN) namespace that identifies certificates.  These
  URNs can be used when certificates need to be identified by value or
  reference.

                                                                                 

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
