This document specifies the use of the KeyNote trust-management
system as an authorization extension in the Transport Layer
Security (TLS) Handshake Protocol, according to guidelines in
RFC 5878.  Extensions carried in the client and server hello messages
confirm that both parties support the desired authorization
data types.  Then, if supported by both the client and the
server, KeyNote credentials are exchanged in the
supplemental data handshake message.  This document is not an 
Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.
