                       PKIX over Secure HTTP (POSH)


   Experience has shown that it is difficult to deploy proper PKIX    certificates for Transport Layer Security (TLS) in multi-tenanted    environments.  As a result, domains hosted in such environments often    deploy applications using certificates that identify the hosting    service, not the hosted domain.  Such deployments force end users and    peer services to accept a certificate with an improper identifier,    resulting in degraded security.  This document defines methods that    make it easier to deploy certificates for proper server identity    checking in non-HTTP application protocols.  Although these methods    were developed for use in the Extensible Messaging and Presence    Protocol (XMPP) as a Domain Name Association (DNA) prooftype, they    might also be usable in other non-HTTP application protocols.
