The concept of channel binding allows applications to establish that
the two end-points of a secure channel at one network layer are the
same as at a higher layer by binding authentication at the higher
layer to the channel at the lower layer.  This allows applications to
delegate session protection to lower layers, which has various
performance benefits.

This document discusses and formalizes the concept of channel binding
to secure channels.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
