Abstract

The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol (see TLS 1.0 [RFC2246], TLS 1.1 [RFC4346], and TLS1 .2 [RFC5246]) is being used in an ever increasing variety of operational environments, the most common among which is its use in securing HTTP traffic [RFC2818]. [RFC5878] introduces extensions that enable TLS to operate in environments where authorization information needs to be exchanged between the client and the server before any protected data is exchanged. The use of these TLS authorization extensions is especially attractive since it allows the client and server to determine the type of protected data to exchange based on the authorization information received in the extensions.

            Transport Layer Security (TLS) Authorization Using       Digital Transmission Content Protection (DTCP) Certificates

Abstract

   This document specifies the use of Digital Transmission Content    Protection (DTCP) certificates as an authorization data type in the    authorization extension for the Transport Layer Security (TLS)    protocol.  This is in accordance with the guidelines for    authorization extensions as specified in RFC 5878.  As with other TLS    extensions, this authorization data can be included in the client and    server hello messages to confirm that both parties support the    desired authorization data types.  If supported by both the client    and the server, DTCP certificates are exchanged in the supplemental    data TLS handshake message as specified in RFC 4680.  This    authorization data type extension is in support of devices containing    DTCP certificates issued by the Digital Transmission Licensing    Administrator (DTLA).
