Title : On the Use of Channel Bindings to Secure Channels
Author(s) : N. Williams
Filename : draft-ietf-nfsv4-channel-bindings-00.txt
Pages : 14
Date : 2003-10-23
This document defines and formalizes the concept of channel bindings
to secure layers and defines the actual contents of channel bindings
for several secure channels.
The concept of channel bindings allows applications to prove that the
end-points of two secure channels are the same by binding
authentication at one network layer to the session protection
negotiation at a lower network layer. The use of channel bindings
allows applications to delegate session protection to lower layers.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
