Subsequent to the publication of "On Channel Bindings" [RFC5056], three channel binding types for Transport Layer Security (TLS) were proposed, reviewed, and added to the IANA channel binding type registry, all in accordance with [RFC5056]. Those channel binding types are: 'tls-unique', 'tls-server-end-point', and 'tls-unique-for- telnet'. It has become desirable to have these channel binding types re-registered through an RFC so as to make it easier to reference them, and to correct them to describe actual implementations. This document does just that. The authors of those three channel binding types have transferred, or have indicated that they will transfer, "ownership" of those channel binding types to the IESG.
